All at Once: The Gift of Navajo Weaving

Through September 26, 2021

All at Once: The Gift of Navajo Weaving showcases 46 exquisite textiles from contemporary Navajo weavers. All at Once has been made possible by the generous donation of longtime Heard Museum members and supporters, Mark and Julie Dalrymple. These textiles, plus dozens more, now reside in the Heard Museum’s permanent collection.

Artist statements from leading Navajo weavers are featured throughout this exhibition including Marlowe Katoney, Marilou Schultz and sisters Barbara Teller Ornelas and Lynda Teller Pete. In their own words, weavers share their sources of inspiration and the way family heritage, technique, materials and knowledge have built up over generations of learning to come together “all at once” under the weaver’s hand.

All at Once: The Gift of Navajo Weaving opens December 18, 2020 and will stay on exhibit through the fall of 2021.
