Blake Hotel’s Art Collection
Every hotel needs to distinguish themselves in order to attract new customers, or entice the previous ones to return. The Blake Hotel in Taos Ski Valley has clearly recognized this, and so, as you enter the doors, you are welcomed by a friendly staff. Moreover, you will discover all around the hotel the Blake Art Collection. In the lobby, you will find masterwork paintings of the Taos Society of Artists. At the reception desk, you can admire a stunning Oscar Berninghaus painting, “A Corner in Taos Plaza”.
There is a cosy fireplace, where you can warm yourself after a long day of skiing and admire “Across Taos Valley” by E. Martin Hennings and Walter Ufer painting, “The Shepherd,”. Moreover, throughout the entire hotel, you can find beautiful photographs of the Blake Family. The historical context and family history of Taos Ski Valley is an important feature of the hotel’s décor and overall feel.
There are three primary public spaces where you can admire great artworks: the front lobby, the spa and the restaurant. There are many different types of artworks throughout the hotel: photographs, paintings, jewels, reverse-on-glass paintings, potteries, precious vessels, sculptures etc.
