This exhibition focuses on the history of beadwork in northern New Mexico--an art form not typically associated with the Southwest. The diverse community of Taos, New Mexico has acted as a center for cross-cultural interactions and exchange for centuries, if not longer. Before and after the arrival of the Spanish into the region, Taos Pueblo was a significant center for trade between the Pueblo communities to the south and the tribal nations of the Plains to the north.
Please note that this exhibition will be temporarily down during the course of the Fall for Antiques Show and Sale from October 7 - 9, 2016. It will continue on Tuesday, October 11, 2016.
