Tera Muskrat is a friend of mine from Dulce, NM. But I think at heart she is a Taoseno (indeed she used to live there). She has a show currently at People's Bank in Taos. Her paintings focus on daily life in New Mexico. Her last series was called New Mexico Calendar Girls. Tera says, "My New Mexico Calendar Girls are celebrations of strength, and durability, power, diversity, and uniqueness of the women here. I ... derive inspiration from the works of the Mexican Calendar Girl artists from the 1930's and 40's as well as by Mexican and New Mexican folk artists."
