cooperative as opposed to a collective — a notable distinction because a coop- erative actually sells art. Each member assumes a diff erent responsibility in running the gallery, making it possi- ble to be both an artist and a business owner (a diffi cult balance otherwise). A charming example is Las Comadres


Women’s Cooperative Gallery, located just north of the Plaza on Bent Street. The eclectic shop has been in business for 16 years, weathering multiple eco- nomic downturns. Eight female artists split the business tasks — from operating the retail store to running the website — as well as create the art that’s for sale. “People love coming in the store and


getting to meet one of the artists,” says Mari “Mud” Hawkes, co-op member and potter. “As an artist, you could be in a stu- dio all the time and never get the direct feedback of people looking at your work. I’ve found it just so inspiring.” The Taos Society of Artists would be proud.
