Award artist, Steven Kilborn. His gouache painting, Cottonwood and Red Wall,

painter and ceramic artist, moved to Pilar in 1978 and opened his retail
space in Taos in 1994.

We hope that submissions for 2011 Taos Select will elicit similar interest."
The 2011 TFAF board would like to thank all of the artists who submitted their amazing art works, Patsy Wright who helped artists navigate the new system, and Rob Nightingale from Wilder-Nightingale Gallery for supporting his artists by submitting several of his gallery artists.
