Gallery Collection

We have tried to show on our site, some examples of our family’s work including several pieces from our neighboring artists around Taos, Chimayo, Cordova and other villages in Northern New Mexico. We welcome special requests and input from our customers and can create and ship your request within seven working days. For example, you can purchase a retablo as folk art, by namesake, birth date, desired situation, occupation, hobby or illness. Each Saint has a feast day, and represents certain occupations. When an order is placed for a retablo the purchaser may request certain colors, borders, size and shape of retablo, and attributes that may correlate with the saint.

We hope you enjoy the readings about the Hispanic and Native American art we have provided on our Resource page.

About the Gallery
