Gallery News and Events
The Museum of Northern Arizona (Flagstaff, Arizona) recently opened, "The Force is With our People," an exhibit that focuses on the impact of Star Wars on Native arts and culture.  I recently had the chance to stop by the musuem and check out some of the fantastic pieces, including the now-famous "Hopi R2-D2" and Jarred Tso's "Boba Fett" Clay mask. We are pleased to have loaned two Star Wars-inspired clay tiles by Jason Garcia to the exhibit.    If you are in the Arizona area this winter and have time to get to Flagstaff, this show is a MUST SEE!
Congrats to the Tucson Desert Art Museum for their new exhibit, "Art is the Seed:  Contemporary Native American Women's Art Inspired by Traditional Crafts."  It is a beautiful exhibit, including paintings by Marla Allison.  The exhibition was recently featured in Forbes Magazine!
2020 is here but received a "2019 Small Business Excellence Award" for "Art Galleries" just at the end of the year!
Thanks to Western Art Collector Magazine for featuring our Scottsdale gallery in their recent along with artists Mateo Romero and Kwani Povi Winder in the (January) issue! 
Annie Healing Nampeyo (1884-1968) was the eldest daughter of Nampeyo of Hano.  She was the matriarch in her own right of a family of potters, including Dextra Quotskuyva, Steve Lucas, and Les Namingha.  This is one of the few pieces of her work we have had that are signed!  It is a large jar that has a batwing designs on Two sides with alternating a bird tails.   The jar is from the 1920s as the red clay slip is the earlier style before the introduction of the less "painterly" red by Mary Colton in the early 1930s.  As well, by the late 1930s, Annie was no longer able to make pottery due to arthritis.  It is an exceptional and substantial piece of her pottery and highlighted here as a piece of Hopi-Tewa pottery history!

"Forward-thinking gallerists, museum curators, and clay artists themselves are fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of Native clay arts. At the forefront is Charles S. King. Owner of King Galleries in Santa Fe and Scottsdale, Arizona.  He is considered by many to be the dean of contemporary Southwestern Native clay arts."
