Venue #1: Susan and Jim are well known in Taos as an avid lovers of music, dance and art. Their gracious home has been the center of many house concerts and fund raisers supporting the arts in Taos. This home is settled on acres of mature trees and meadows with an historic acequia flowing through the property. One can quickly forget how close to town you are, it exudes a tranquil environment that soothes the soul. There is an enclosed patio area that is lush with annual and perennial plants that is perfect for entertaining. This home has been the center of many social and family celebrations.
Venue #2: This beautiful traditional Taos home has many special features. The front of the home enjoys natural landscaping with native plants, including sage, chamisa, and an impressive purple carpet of mature salvia. The grounds behind the house are landscaped with fruit trees, flowering shrubs, archways, patios, and portals, inviting you to sit and linger in this serene environment.
Venue #3: Many of us are familiar with the beautiful jewelry and artworks from Claire’s shop in Arroyo Seco “Claireworks”. Her home and gardens are just as unique as the artist herself. Nestled among a piñon forest, are flowering shrubs, shade trees and a private water sanctuary with a colorful variety of waterlilies and cattails. She is willing to give us a glimpse into her inspiring home and studio that is well worth the short drive to Hondo Seco.
Venue #4: This El Prado property has a spacious garden that includes a variety of penstemons and a beautiful rock garden that is filled with texture and color. There are two very different patios. The first is small and filled with a variety of shade plants. The second is much larger planted with sun loving plants and a beautiful water feature.
