The Gallery

Anna Karin Gallery carries the work of local artists who live in Truchas, a traditional village established in 1754 as part of a Spanish land grant. We are showing in a restored adobe home in which several of the rooms are over 200 years old. The drive from Santa Fe to Taos along the High Road is one of the real treats in Northern New Mexico and Truchas is often called the high point of the High Road. Join us when you're in the area.

Our collection is diverse and represents the efforts of seasoned artists. We are comitted to showing the very best quality in an artist driven setting. Our work is our life and we are pleased to share both. The gallery is usually staffed by one or more of the artists, offering the visitor an opportunity to speak directly with the creators of the work on display.

The Artists

The gallery features the work of Anna Karin, a classical painter of the imagination working in a layered Renaissance style. Anna's work consists of landscape, figure and still life executed in oil on linen. Please visit her Portfolio for a statement, examples and access to print sales.
Also shown are the abstract paintings of Jeane George Weigel. Jeane draws inspiration from the power of the land of New Mexico to create works that offer an impression of the history and majesty of this place. Please visit her Portfolio for a statement and a link to her website.

Photographer, Craig Scogin is represented by a selection of archival prints as well as photographs in the book format. Craig's work is primarily landscape and artifact in a straight photographic style. Please visit his Portfolio for a statement, examples, access to his blog and print or book sales.

Bill Loyd is a well known regional artist who employs recycled materials to create a variety of bells and sculpture. Bill creates objects of visual and sonic beauty from items that would otherwise remain in landfills for ten thousand years. Please visit his Portfolio for a statement, examples, access to his web site and sales information.
