Blue Rain Gallery artists step up to the easel with works by W. Herbert “Buck” Dunton in mind. Dunton was the last of the six founding members of the Taos Society of Artists, a group established in 1915, between friends and fellow painters with similar interests in painting and the region.
Blue Rain Gallery presents The Taos Six Collection, an ongoing series where artists pay tribute to the founding artists. This year, W. Herbert “Buck” Dunton is the artist in the spotlight. Artists study his work, searching for their own meaning while they paint their interpretations.
An Homage to W. Herbert Dunton is scheduled to take place April 28 – May 20, 2023 with an Artist Reception on Friday, April 28th from 5 - 7pm.
“This is an important annual series for Blue Rain Gallery, and we are grateful to our many talented and devoted artists that have taken the challenge yearly.
Their commitment to this project has helped strengthen the enduring value and legacy of the series,” states Denise Phetteplace, Executive Director of Blue Rain Gallery.
As gallerists that have enjoyed the vitality of the art market in Northern New Mexico for 30 years, we of course feel a certain reverence toward the legacy of the Taos founding painters.
Taos Six Collection: An Homage to W. Herbert Dunton gives collectors and art enthusiasts alike an opportunity to simultaneously celebrate the past and present.
