It’s An Exciting Time In Taos…
…and TMO is happy to be here on the plaza in the center of all the activity!
If you have been in the shop you have noticed that fall has arrived and we have a wonderful selection of clothing and footwear for cooler weather. Stop by this Wednesday, September 24 between 5 and 7 p.m. for Boots and Burgandy – have a glass of wine and check out the new arrivals.
We also have taken further markdowns on summer merchandise so now is the time to get next summer’s sandals
The Kongos and Pot Creek String Band
Everyone is talking about this Thursday’s concert featuring The Kongos. Taos Solar Fest, along with the Town of Taos, has planned a fun filled event that should provide fun for all ages.
Our own Banjo Billy and the Pot Creek String Band will perform in front of TMO starting at 4 p.m.
40th Annual Taos Arts Festival
This weekend kicks off the 40th Annual Taos Arts Festival. This year the Paseo will line our streets highlighting various art – have you seen the huge Robot at the Kachina Lodge?
Taos is known throughout the world as an art colony. When I tell friends that I live here they are surprised – I can’t even draw stick figures. But, then I attended an Arts and Carafe event. All you need to feel like an artist is a good attitude – and a beverage – and you will walk away with your own piece of art.
The painting and art events are held at area restaurants and tasting rooms. Local artists walk you through how to take a blank piece of canvas and create a scene. I have done two classes – one that showed the Pueblo on a snowy night and the other – of course – the most painted church in the world, St. Francis of Assisi church in Ranchos de Taos.
Both afternoons were fun; I was surprised how easy it is to mix up paint and cover over up mistakes. The artwork is fun and although TMO will not be hosting any “Meet the Artist” events I encourage you to get into the fall arts mood and check this out!
