An Evening with Patricia Michaels

Patricia Michaels, Taos fashion designer and former Project Runway contestant (pmwaterlilyfashion.com), will give a talk entitled "The Heart of Mother Earth Given to the Soul of Women in the Arts who Touched Taos." Michaels' strong roots at Taos Pueblo and the influence of the modernist aesthetic of women artists and patrons of 20th century New Mexico (including Georgia O'Keeffe, Agnes Martin, and Mabel Dodge Luhan) influence her designs and philosophy. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a cash bar and hors d'oeuvres cocktail reception. Make sure you take advantage of this rare opportunity to purchase select items of Michaels' couture during the Trunk Show. Ticket price also includes entry to the nationally acclaimed exhibition, Mabel Dodge Luhan and Company: American Moderns and the West, in which you can see artwork by the women who inspire Michaels' designs. Make it a night on the town with friends, fashion, and fancy finger foods. Seating is limited. An Evening with Patricia Michaels is sponsored by NM Arts.
