Santa Fe Indian Market – This Weekend! (August 23rd and 24th)

Santa Fe Indian Market

I have been working really hard for this show! One-of-a-kind fine art pieces take time to make, I wish I could post everything I am creating as I make it. To be in this show has been a dream of mine – and it’s coming true! I am honored and grateful to be one of the chosen artists to be at this event.

This is a big deal!

I hope to see some of you there. If you read my blog, stop by and say “Hello.”

This Weekend! American Indian Arts 2013 Marketplace at the Autry: Juried Show

The American Indian Arts Marketplace is a high end art festival featuring over 40 tribes represented by 180 artists. It is Southern California’s largest Native American art market. This is a juried exhibition.

From the American Indian Arts Marketplace Overview:

This year, in recognition of the Autry’s 25th anniversary exhibition Art of the West, the Marketplace explores themes of contemporary Native American art in all its iterations, while still honoring traditional roots.

“The Marketplace attracts people who are interested in Native art beyond the museum collections. They’re interested in your work but they’re also interested in you, and in supporting a sense of community. That mindset is at the core of Native art shows like the Autry’s,” said Mateo Romero, a Marketplace artist whose mixed-media piece War Music II is part of the Autry’s permanent collection and featured in Art of the West.

Juried Exhibit This Weekend! Indian Art Market

I will be in Salt Lake City this weekend showing my work at the Natural History Museum of Utah – Canyon in Salt Lake City. I’m really excited about this show, and a little nervous because I think I’m going to be driving through snow for twelve hours!
“Celebrate native arts and culture at the Natural History Museum of Utah. The Indian Art Market is a juried show featuring the work of regional native artists. Over 20 selected artists will display and sell their original work ranging from jewelry, beadwork, sculpture, painting and more. Meet the artists, learn about contemporary Indian arts and tribal culture and take home something new and unique to add to your collection.”

I have been invited to represent the Yavapai-Apache Nation at the Eiteljorg Museum next week, on June 22nd and June 23rd, for the 2013 Eiteljorg Indian Market and Festival. The event will feature top Native American artists from around the country.

I will be displaying several new designs at the festival! I’m really happy with these new pieces.

“The Eiteljorg collects and preserves high-quality Western art and Native American art and cultural objects. Its collection includes artists such as T.C. Cannon, N. C. Wyeth, Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe, Allan Houser, Frederic Remington, Charles Russell and Kay WalkingStick. The institution’s contemporary Native art collection has been ranked among the world’s best.”
