Shop events during the Fair

The Heard Museum Shop has invited six special American Indian artists to show and sell their work in the shop for Indian Fair & Market. The artists and specialists Terry Dewald and Pat Harrington will be on hand Friday evening for Best of Show and all weekend. In addition, Books & More will host numerous authors throughout the weekend for book signings. See below for details.

ARTISTS:

Tony Abeyta (Navajo) works his contemporary magic in mixed-media paintings. Abeyta was the 2012recipient of the New Mexico Governor’s Excellence in the Arts award and is recognized as a Native treasure by the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture.

Doug Hyde (Nez Perce/Assiniboine/Chippewa) creates sculptures that reflect the stories he learned as a youth or historical events. Hyde, a Vietnam veteran who was grievously wounded, learned his craft while working at a friend’s tombstone business. Today, Hyde is one of the most important living American Indian sculptors.

Tammy Garcia (Santa Clara Pueblo) makes her first appearance at the Heard in many years! The Pueblo potter and sculptor is renowned for her highly prized ceramic works encompassing a progressive evolution of forms that include
traditional as well as non-traditional and modern asymmetrical shapes.

Duane Maktima (Laguna Pueblo/Hopi) is a master jeweler who has created a unique style that makes his jewelry prized as heirloom pieces for many
distinguished patrons and collectors.

Al Qöyawayma (Hopi) Known by many as “Al Q,” the notable Hopi potter is truly a Renaissance man. Today, this former engineer creates pieces that, he writes, “reflect the aesthetic influences of the Southwest environment and values passed down through our family.”

Roxanne Swentzell (Santa Clara Pueblo) Since age 4, when she first created a clay dog, Roxanne Swentzell was destined to be a talented artist. Her figures represent a full range of emotions and irrepressible moods. Swentzell frequently focuses on interpretive female portraits attempting to bring back the balance of power between the male and female, inherently recognized in her own culture.

SPECIALISTS:

Terry DeWald is a respected authority on American Indian basketry. He is the author of The Papago Indians and Their Basketry (1979) and is a noted appraiser, lecturer and adviser on Native arts, particularly on antique baskets.
