Doel Reed Center in Taos

Doel Reed Center in Taos Multi-disciplinary creative center in Taos, New Mexico presented by Oklahoma State University
(3)

Oklahoma State University immediately recognized the potential when Martha Reed offered her alma Mater a unique opportunity to establish a multi-disciplinary creative arts center in the area of Taos, New Mexico, a locale that has legendary artistic heritage. Today, the Doel Reed Center for the Arts stands as a testament to her vision and generosity. Martha's father, Doel, helped establish OSU's Art Department and directed it until his 1959 retirement to the family property located on the scenic High Road southwest of Taos.The art community recognizes him as the "master of the aquatint," and many of the world's most prestigious museums still feature his aquatints, oil paintings, and drawings. He brought unprecedented acclaim to OSU, which has ensured his contributions will always be appropriately acknowledged by establishing this living laboratory on the family property, which Martha donated before her December 2010 passing.

Mission: The Doel Reed Center extends Oklahoma State University's reach into another state by offering programs characterized by synergistic, multidisciplinary approaches to teaching, research, and outreach focusing on the Southwest. OSU students and life-long learners explore diverse topics in this art mecca. While it's educational programs initially focused on the arts, their scope is expanding to include literature, history, interior and fashion design, native American Studies, architecture, agriculture, and other disciplines. It will build additional community partnerships, like the one existing between the Center and the Taos Art Museum, that foster collaboration, help meet the local and OSU educational needs, and stimulate local economic development.

The San Geronimo Cemetery at Taos Pueblo holds the ruins of the old San Geronimo Church. The old church was built around 1619 by Spanish priests with Indian labor. The people of Taos Pueblo were forced into Catholicism and slavery in order to become “civilized.” This is what eventually led to the Pueblo Revolt of 1680.

Please be aware when visiting Taos Pueblo, to respect the cemetery by not entering.

Oklahoma Oral History Research Program

Many Oklahoma State University community members may be familiar with the Bartlett Center, which houses Oklahoma State University’s Art Department. Originally a women’s dorm, the building came to house our campus’ most creative students and faculty in 1984. But OSU hasn’t always had an art department. It was started in 1924 by a man by the name of Doel Reed. Doel and his daughter Martha would go on to become two of the most noteworthy creatives that OSU has ever produced. This month on Amplified Oklahoma, we’ll be exploring the legacy of Doel and Martha Reed on campus and in the worlds of art and fashion. We’ll listen to excerpts from an interview with Martha Reed in 2007, and sit down with Dr. Carol Moder, the director of OSU’s Doel Reed Center in Taos, New Mexico. She’ll speak over Doel and Martha’s lives and careers and talk about the creation of the Doel Reed Center and the functions it now serves. Take a listen: http://bit.ly/2MOxwc0

We loved having you here.

We said farewell to Taos, our home for the week, and made it safely back to Stillwater, just ahead of the snow now blanketing OSU. It was an intense week of writing with a few short breaks to learn more about the area. We're so proud of these scholars and all they have and will accomplish! Stay tuned for more photos from the week on our FB page. A big thanks to the OSU Doel Reed Center in Taos for hosting our group during the days!

Framed: 49 3/4 × 41 1/2 × 3 in. (126.4 × 105.4 × 7.6 cm)
Gift of John Manchester

A bright blue background and the bright yellow color of the church building signify the bright colors so loved by artists when they come to New Mexico with all its light. In the foreground of the painting fires burn on either side, filling the bottom half of the painting on either side with a deep purple smoke. A group of faceless people occupy the center of the painting surrounding and supporting the platform of a figure in white.. The white figure is also the only one to have details of a face as will as additions of adornment like her sash, bringing your full attention to the woman dressed in white. - Maranda Nieman

Second day of cooking school with Chef Chris Maher! Love it!
Cooking classes!!
Day three of the Fashion Studies Leisure Learning class. Lots of color, dyeing, laughter, and fun!. AND everyone left with an original design on a silk habotai scarf and a silk chiffon wrap. It was so interesting to see the diversity of colors and patterns. Everyone caught on really fast and did beautiful work. We think that Martha Reed was with us in spirit!
Day two of the Fashion Studies Leisure Learning class. Wonderful spinning and weaving demonstration at La hacienda de los Martinez by Annie Wild, followed with a fun and interesting conversation with Tony Whitecrow at his studio/boutique where we learned about his amazing work custom designing with deerskin for Country Western stars. Then off to the Pueblo where we watched ceremonial dancers in traditional dress honoring St. James, and all the people named James. We met a Native Traditional Needlepoint artisan, Hopi Sun Girl, Darlene Montoya, who was wearing a skirt by Martha of Taos. We had a nice conversation with her! A full day!!
Day one of the Leisure Learning class: Fashion Studies. Visited Hummingbird Beads and Supplies. Had a nice chat with proprietor Scott Hight, who also has ties to Oklahoma!
Day one of the Fashion Studies Leisure Learning class. Exploring Hummingbird Beads in Taos: horsehair, feathers, horn, beads and more. The owner even had ties to Oklahoma!
