Tucked away in plain sight in the historic 1948 Howell Building on Kit Carson Road, you’ll find Bryans Gallery. Home to authentic Southwestern Native American arts and jewelry, Bryan Steger opened the gallery on April Fool’s Day, 1982. Steger isn’t the type to be concerned with having the last laugh but perhaps his jester-like decision to open on Fool’s Day has helped to maintain the levity required to run a successful business for 40 years. 

“You would have to be a fool to open a gallery on April Fool’s Day in Taos,” chuckled Steger, but clearly, he has found a way to make it work, not only through a recession but also a pandemic. The inviting gallery space welcomes visitors with warm hospitality to shop and linger. The energy feels part museum, part art gallery.
