Chloride, NM - Everyone is invited to the 3rd Annual Birthday Bash for the Monte Cristo Gift Shop & Gallery on Saturday, August 8, 2009. The Gallery is located in the old Monte Cristo Saloon & Dance Hall which was built in 1880 to serve the thirsty miners of Chloride. Today the Monte Cristo, which is a site on the New Mexico Fiber Arts Trail, is home to the works of approximately thirty(30) local artisans. The artists work in a variety of mediums including photography, painting, quilting, counted cross-stitch, hand-spun/hand-knit items, stamping, jewelry, wood work, metal work and more. Locally grown and produced food items are also available such as pecans, honey and candy.

From 10AM to 4PM the day promises to be filled with fun and festivities. Displaying artists will be on hand to meet patrons. Tom Diamond, a long time ranch owner at Beaverhead will be signing his historical novels "Rimfire" and "Apache Tears". Several artists will be doing wood craving demonstrations. Homer Bryant will perform his original cowboy poetry and music for everyones enjoyment. There will be door prize drawings and refreshments. A purchase of $25.00 or more will enter you in the drawings, which will be held at the end of the day. You do not need to be present to win.

So plan to make the beautiful drive to Chloride, just 40 miles from Truth or Consequences, NM. From I-25 take Exit 83 or 89 to Hwy 181, then take Hwy 52 west to Winston. At Winston take the first left past the General Store, stay on the paved road 2 miles to Chloride. For more information contact 575-743-0493 or
