Fans of Taos Society of Artists (TSA, active 1915-1927) will be delighted to see three paintings by the only female artist voted into their art club: Catharine Critcher. Museum Director Richard Tobin negotiated loan agreements with three other institutions to bring the paintings, which are all of Taos subjects, to the museum for the length of the exhibition. Also on exhibit are works by wives of the male artists of the era – Blumenschein, Ufer and Harwood.
