This past weekend was the 2nd annual Taos Pueblo Artist's Winter Showcase. From late winter to early spring the Pueblo closes for about 10 weeks for what is called "quiet time". During this time, the artists who live and work at the Pueblo need to find other ways to show their art. The showcase provides this opportunity for a number of extremely talented artists.
The "headliner" (my term, not theirs) was Patricia Michaels, a Season 11 finalist in the show Project Runway. In addition, there were potters, painters, glass blowers, photographers, tribal drum makers, carvers and jewelry makers. We bought a beautiful piece from local artist Jocelyn Martinez, a monotype called "evening harvest" which is an abstract depiction of a corn field. I can't wait to share it with you...I will photograph and post as soon as we get it framed.
The show has ended but if you visit Taos next March you can check it out then. Or visit the artists in their studios when the Pueblo is open. And don't forget to tour the Millicent Rogers Museum. A very worthwhile use of your time in Taos.
The Millicent Rogers Museum is located at 1504 Millicent Rogers Road, 4 miles north of Taos Plaza and 1/2 mile south of Highway 64.
