Cocktails and jewelry shopping...could there be a better combination?
The Heard Museum North is hosting a trunk show with New Mexican Jewelers David and Wayne Nez Gaussoin tomorrow evening, Thursday, November 18.
The two will be selling their dramatic wearable art pieces. And did we mention there'll be cocktails?
It's all a part of the Heard's evening series called Fusion, which aims to attract 20- and 30-somethings to appreciate and begin collecting fine art and jewelry. This week's event is the third and final night of the series.
The Gaussoin brothers have spent a lifetime making jewelry. Both employ traditional techniques they learned from their mother (The family is of Picuris Pueblo, Navajo and French heritage). Fused with a contemporary design, the pieces are dramatic -- definitely not for a wallflower. At the trunk show, pieces that range from $70 to $2,500 will be available for purchase.
The evening will also feature live music by Apache group Estun-Bah and the festivities last from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Entry is free for members, $5 for non-members. Click here for location details.
