Image Artist Award

Image Awards are presented to finalists selected from submissions to the poster artist’s annual award. Because of the high level of quality of work received each year, the TFAF Board initiated this award in 2017 to share additional work with the community and promote Taos County artists. 

These award winning artists are featured in selected Taos Fall Arts Festival print materials and advertising, provided a shared, designated wall at the Fall Festival and may enter two works in the show. They are also invited to participate in the TFAF Exhibit at the Taos Ski Valley Art Festival in August along with the Poster Artist.

The Taos Fall Arts Open Exhibition, the Poster Artist Award and the Image Artist Awards are inclusive of all cultures, styles and materials. An abundance of well-known, established artists as well as emerging artists enter work into the poster competition and the main show in the fall. Taos Fall Arts Festival offers a way to honor the heritage and the future of art in Taos.
