A memorial for esteemed Taos art gallery owner Tally Richards is planned Saturday afternoon (Aug. 9) at the Harwood Museum of Art, 238 Ledoux St. The public event, which is from 3-5 p.m., will be a celebration of Richards’ life and is planned to include music, readings from her memoir and friends who will speak about her life and times, according to her brother, Wade Stackhouse.

Richards died April 29 in Palm Springs, Calif., of complications stemming from lung cancer. Her Gallery of Contemporary Art, located at the corner of Ledoux St. and Camino de la Placita, was thought of as the hub of modern art in Taos for more than 20 years.
