Scope and Contents

In the first letter dated June 7, 1992, Kloss notes that she hasn't created any new work for some time, but that she continues to make prints for Gallery A in Taos, noting that they are sold as quickly as she is able to print them. She mentions that the two grandsons of her friend and model, Adam Trujillo (Taos Pueblo) who passed away that same year, are helping her in her garden. She discusses the difficulties in art supplies such as how the composition of ink has changed. She mentions several friends that she keeps in touch with including Mary Phillips.
Scope and Contents In the second letter dated August 24, 1993, Kloss discusses the weather and her ongoing difficulty finding the right type of ink for drypoint and aquatint and finding that she can't print some plates at all. She even reached out directly to ink makers in Chicago and others, but with no result.
Scope and Contents In the third note, Kloss explains that she is unable to work at all anymore, partly due to the inability to find appropriate ink. She mentions an upcoming exhibition of her work at the Harwood Library in Taos. She notes that Lucy Harwood was one of the first people they met on their first visit to Taos in 1925.
Scope and Contents In the fourth letter, Kloss describes how much Taos has changed due to the ski activity. She says that she and Phillips have reached an age where her concerns about printing ink are now a thing of the past and that they are unable to keep up with activities anymore.
