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

logo_AIAM_2013 (2)This weekend, November 9th & 10th, I’ll be in Los Angeles showing at American Indian Arts 2013 Marketplace at the Autry.

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.

Copper Mokume Pendant

Mokume, Silver and Turquoise Shadowbox Pendant

mokumeturq.1Mokume, Silver and Turquoise Shadowbox Pendant

I am loving working with mokume lately. I am enthralled with  the patterns that have been coming out of the recent bit of mokume I made. The circles and swirls of copper and silver are so thrilling to me – and as the copper matures, it will shift and deepen in color as well.

Organic line combined with my signature style turquoise shadowbox is a new level of work.

Very clean turquoise stone against black and intense mokume patterning. Stunning chance!

Entirely hand-made. One-of-a-kind. Fine silver, copper, and turquoise. Approximately 2 1/4 inches long by 1/2 inch wide, 1/4 inch deep. Signed on the back.

Silver Shadowbox with Speckled Turquoise

Silver Shadowbox with Speckled Turquoise

No two shadowbox pieces are alike, right down to the shapes of the stones. I prefer to leave the stones as organic as possible in most cases—and base the work around the shape of the stone. The turquoise in this piece is from southern Arizona, and has little black speckles in it.

This shadowbox is a hollow form made of polished sterling and fine silver and turquoise. It is approximately 2″ long, a 1/2 inch wide at it’s widest point, and 1/4 inch deep. Signed on the back.

Double Turquoise Shadowbox Pendant

Double Turquoise Shadowbox Pendant

Take a walk on a dry riverbed, and look for stones that are scooped by water. Or, look at an eddie, the water swirling against a rock in a river, it carves into the stone. Almost imperceptible yet powerful change . . .

This piece reminds me of water droplets sitting in a bowl-shaped stone, the kind of stone shaped over years and years of water droplets against its service.

Like all of my shadowbox pieces, this piece is entirely hand-fabricated and is one of its kind.

2 inches long, 1/2 inch wide at widest point, 1/4 inch deep. The turquoise in this pendant is from the southwest region of the United States.
