Join us in a celebration of the beauty, culture, and heritage of the Southwest and its people. This arts market brings together many American Indian artists who represent the region’s diverse crafts, artistry, and formative stories. Featuring award-winning artist David John, Tohono O’odham basketweavers Fred and Della Cruz, master Navajo silversmith Alex Sanchez, and representing over 100 Zuni carvers, Gene Orth of the Dowa Yallane Trading Co. David John is a Navajo artist whose paintings embody the mythology and history of his people. Fred and Della Cruz are of the Tonoho O’odham tribe. Their traditionally woven baskets and hand-crafted figures represent ancient traditions. Alex Sanchez is a Navajo jeweler whose work transcends the gap between ancient and contemporary. His use of precious metals has earned him the nickname of Master Navajo Silversmith. Gene Orth will bring a selection of authentic Zuni fetishes, and will be available all day to talk about fetish symbolism, and how to identify a knockoff. Artists will demonstrate throughout the day.

The American Indian Arts Market will bring cultures together, weaving together important stories and shared values, while celebrating the diversity of our heritage. Don’t miss this amazing artists’ showcase.
