The Fenix is the old English spelling for the Phoenix, the mythical bird who consumed her/himself in fire, from which a new, young phoenix arises. The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded thus symbolizing regeneration and immortality. DH Lawrence used the symbol of the Phoenix in his writing and carved and drew images of the Phoenix in his Taos homes. The image adorns his grave at the Lawrence Ranch above San Cristobal, New Mexico. The Fenix is a fitting symbol for the Fenix Gallery. It represents art which heralds change while maintaining its strong roots in archetypical imagery.
Founded in 1989 by Judith Kendall the Fenix Gallery strives to present the best in contemporary Taos Artists. 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. The same extraordinary art by Taos artists is on-line and will be also shown privately. Although the physical space has closed most of the artist studios are open by appointment. If clients and all former patrons and supporters of the Fenix wish to see work by an individual artist , this is possible. Please call (575) 776-8167 or (575) 758-9120 or e-mail, email@example.com
for an appointment. The gallery is open at all times on-line. Terms for payment through credit card or check are available, as is shipping.
Celebrating culture, preserving our past, and nurturing the soul, it is my privilege to present this fine art.
