The work of Helen Day (Knox) Tays has been prized for many years by numerous admires and collectors around the country. Many of her works were in oil of the American South West and New Mexico. The Tays Art Museum has obtained a number of her works and a collection of slides that she made shortly before her death at the age of 62 in 1987. She died leaving a large number of paintings and other art works. The museum has made many of these available to the public in the form of reproductions. Now the general public can experience the talent and majesty of the works of this gifted artist.
Some of her works were featured in 2015 at The Three Generation Art Show held at the Tays Center of New Mexico University in Alamogordo, New Mexico
