Artemisia was founded in 2002 as a place for New Mexico fiber artists and weavers to offer their creations as wearable art. Through the years, the gallery has become well known for its unique collection of fine handwoven garments and one-of-a-kind artwear and accessories — making it a favorite destination for fiber arts lovers from around the world.
Are you looking for fun, colorful Artwear that is stylish and sophisticated... or for an original handwoven created by a local weaving artist? How about a boldly designed accessory that expresses your creativity? You have arrived at the right place!
Artemisia is celebrating 21 years in Taos and choosing unique, artistic wearable art pieces for our gallery is what we love to do! Our mission is to present you with a selection of only the finest in innovative design and impeccable craftsmanship. We carry mostly casual, easy to wear garments in natural fibers such as linen, silk, and cotton, made by American fiber artists or small design studios from across the country.
Our artists and weavers are the centerpiece of Artemisia and we are proud to represent them in Taos.
We have a long, successful history with our favorite designers, including New Mexico weavers Nancy Paap, Barbara Ehrlich, Natasha Nargis, and Bella Sue Martin, Tennessee silk and velvet artist Lisa Mergen, Florida jewelry and fiber artist Kathy Skomsky, and handpainted silks from Alexis Abrams in California – just to mention a few.
We continue to bring you extraordinary knitwear and silk organza creations from Renata Zimmermann, freestyle handwoven original designs from Dayna Fisk-Williams at Fringe Weaving in Santa Fe, and a lovely collection of IKAT dyed silk and linen handwoven shrugs, shawls and tops from Karim Jaekel.
We are pleased to be one of only a few galleries selected to represent the weaving of Teri D. Inman with Bristol Yarnworks in Colorado. In addition, we feature a hand-picked selection of one-of-a-kind handwoven garments from Austin based Sandra Doak, and contemporary reversible knit ponchos and lightweight ponchettes from Bobbie Sumberg, with KNIT in Santa Fe.
We would like to welcome Ann Haile Carson, with Ramifications in Roswell, NM, and her elegant handwoven original designs, to the gallery.
Over the past few years, we have added to our list of fiber artists working with silk and wool. Each artist has a unique style which is evident in the wide variety of felted wearables that we offer. Award winning Los Alamos fiber artist, Maggy Pavlou, creates a new collection for spring/summer and then again in the fall. We always look forward to seeing what's been happening in the studio with New Mexico's own Anne Vickrey Evans, who creates exquisite wool jackets and coats from her felted fabric in her studio in Tierra Amarilla. We love the colorful nuno felted designs from Santa Fe fiber artist Terri Wildermuth, and the very elegant hand dyed silk and wool nuno felted creations from Linda St. Angelo. Colorado fiber artists, Perla Kopeloff and Rebecca Gilberto, round out our growing list of cutting-edge fiber artists.
Thank you for your interest in Artemisia and we look forward to welcoming you at our store in beautiful Taos, New Mexico or as an online customer.
