Southwest Magic Tour 2022

About Instructor

Santa Fe is a city unlike any other with a timeless and earthy soul.

Legendary history, culture, and art scene span from traditional to contemporary, accommodations with an intimate local feel yet world-class status, award-winning cuisine, and countless art-filled experiences to encounter.

Highlights will include private, guided tours of the New Mexico Museum of Art, and a visit to the Georgia O’Keeffe Home and Studio with a picnic at Ghost Ranch, the landscape of many of her works. A day excursion to Taos, Navajo pottery demonstration, and artist studio tours. The geology of the Southwest especially lends itself to mosaic inspiration as does the spiritual and peaceful nature of the desert.

Traditional with Maverick Mosaic art-filled tours we will create a one-of-a-kind personal memento artwork. Working with Santa Fe artist Lauren Mantecon learn the alchemy of mixed media and its interplay with mark-making, collage, and painting. What a terrific souvenir!

4-star hotel accommodations, hassle-free travel, comfortable coach transportation, and wonderful company. This is a perfect mix of docent lead tours to unique sites, private studio visits, and free time. And a dream come true for art lovers! Especially fans of Georgia O’Keefe.

The trip is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, our tour officially begins with our early evening meet and greet on March 12 at our hotel. We will stay at the same beautiful 4-star hotel for the duration of the trip.

This is Maverick Mosaics’ first domestic overnight tour. Maverick Mosaics owner, Bonnie Fitzgerald,  has hosted seven independent international tours. She has also led 6 one-day tours of mosaic sites for the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and Virginia. Her acclaimed success is due in large part to the expertise and planning of travel and logistics partner Mr. Rene Piard.  Hassle-free travel is a paramount feature of our trips. Ground transportation and transfers are included, and no waiting in lines for scheduled tours.
