Day 3 headed home from Taos

The next morning, we packed up the car and headed up to the Dunn Shops for gift shopping and to try to find Anne Brenner. We had tracked Anne down to her office behind her business Taos Rockers.

Anne and her mother, Barbara Brenner, were friends of my mothers. I wanted to just stop in and tip my hat . The Brenners are granddaughter and great granddaughter of Oscar E. Berninghaus of the Taos Society of Artists. You can read about how essential the work of the descendants of the founders has been to the celebration of Taos as an arts community. Barbara Brenner was a founding member of the Taos Arts Festival in the 70’s. Read more in the Taos News.

I mentioned in an earlier blog to always start your visit at Ranchos Church and Two Graces Gallery. Well we ended ours there. Where I always enjoy hearing what’s up from Robert Cafazzo, and he helped us choose the books that we brought home to keep our trip alive. Robert’s paintings and the paintings and drawings of Holly Seivers are great to see. The historic items he sells are a must see. We were looking for quick food, so he sent us to KoKo’s. Perfect. Then we headed to Sierra Vista Cemetery to visit my parents.  Next trip we plan for Taos Sheepskin Company and Taos Pueblo, and a coffee with the Brenners. We headed off across the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge.

We did a good job coming off the Salida Reception and soaking up the Taos history. I always leave Taos with a plan to return. Thanks to all the special people who make the visits special.
