Remarkable Women of Taos Lecture This Saturday

July 28th from 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Judith Kendall, Gallery Owner and Director
will lecture on: 
                          "Contemporary Taos Women Fine Artists-
                                            How Does it Work?"
Judith Kendall owner of the Fenix Gallery has assembled a panel of five women artists who will discuss the contemporary art scene. Founded in 1989 by Judith Kendall, the Fenix Gallery strives to present the best in contemporary Taos Art. After twenty exceptional years, over fifty solo exhibitions and countless group shows in two distinct physical spaces in Taos, the Fenix is rising again as a strictly virtual space. With her vast experi-ence the panel that has been assembled represents some of the finest women artists in Taos County.
Ms. Kendall will moderate the panel discussion, asking questions of the panel and providing the audience with points of discussion. The five women artists will include Ginger Mongiello, Barbara Zaring, Zoe Zimmer-man, Dienke Nauta, and Rachael Varela. The panel is made up of artists that exemplify celebrating culture, preserving our past, and nurturing the soul through fine art. Each artist will talk about their medium and give an overview of their struggles and achievements as an artist. The panel will address issues such as special challenges they have encountered in Taos, are women artists supported by the community and the art world, are women gaining ground in art, are there accommodations that need to be made to harmonize with other artists in Taos, etc.

This is a free event. Sponsored by Friends of Taos Public Library

Your E-Reader Tracks A Lot Of Information About You

Privacy hawks take note: If you want to keep anything about your reading habits or subject matter confidential, you may want to limit your reading to dead tree material. A fascinating, if disconcerting article in the Wall Street Journal reveals that that fun new e-device that makes downloading and carrying around books such a breeze also makes tracking what you read and how you read it a breeze, too.
