Trunk Show to Feature Vintage Jewelry, Pottery, and Fine Art,
Fechin Studio, April 14, 12-4pm
The trunk show will be presented by Taos resident, Jack Mehegan. Growing up in Boulder, CO, Mehegan’s family traveled extensively throughout the Southwest during summer vacations, and his father’s favorite destination was always“somewhere in New Mexico.” Through these trips he became enchanted with the natural beauty, cultures, and art of New Mexico. His’ passion for the southwest continued to grow, and while studying anthropology at ASU he began collecting Southwestern art.
As I grew into adulthood my passion for the southwest flourished. While studying anthropology at ASU I began collecting Southwest art, and I have been collecting ever since.
Five years ago I decided to return to Taos for my retirement: I first lived in Taos in the late nineteen seventies. Since moving back I was searching for a way to supplement my income. For Christmas, two years ago, I gave everyone on my list a piece of vintage Navajo jewelry and everyone loved their gifts. I decided to see if I could supplement my retirement income using my passion and knowledge for vintage Southwest art. I began selling my vintage Navajo jewelry at the Taos Art Museum Store. My sales have now expanded to include vintage jewelry from other Southwest tribes, vintage pueblo pottery and vintage Southwest fine art.
