February 2019 Newsletter Update
Winter is upon us in Scottsdale, and we are finally ready for sunnier weather!  Santa Fe, on the other hand, has had a lot of snow!  I think each time I have been out to the gallery, there has been another snowstorm.  
Jennifer Tafoya & Chris Youngblood Show Date Change
Our upcoming shows with Jennifer Tafoya and Christopher Youngblood have been changed to Saturday, February 23, due to the extra snowy winter in New Mexico, and it has delayed firing times to get their pottery finished.  We apologize for the delay but are excited to have more exceptional work available for the event!
Heard Market Weekend News
Our Annual Heard Indian Market show is Thursday, February 28.  The gallery will be open all day, and the artists will be in attendance from 5 to 9 pm.  Please join Nathan Youngblood, Al Qoyawayma, Les Namingha, Tammy Garcia, Juan de la Cruz, Dean Patrick Hubbell, and Marla Allison for the premiere of some exceptional new Native art!

Every Day we have new pieces up online.  We appreciate you checking them out and seeing the exceptional pottery we get into the gallery!  In contemporary work, there are stunning pieces by nearly all the gallery artists. The various historic pieces include some great provenance, ribbons, and great stories! 

Check out Instagram and Facebook for more frequent updates.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Gallery News
I recently joined Nathan Youngblood as he was interviewed in his studio by New Mexico PBS "Colores."  They spoke with him about his art, family, and culture along with a firing and pottery making.  It was fascinating, and I look forward to the half-hour TV episode coming out later this year! 
We are delighted to announce the addition of Patrick Dean Hubbell to our Scottsdale gallery location.  Hubbell, who is Dine, is most famous for his earthen pigment paintings. The paintings combine natural pigments gathered from around the Navajo Nation, with oil paint to create additional designs. Check out these breathtaking paintings next time you are in the Scottsdale gallery!
Last summer Mark Sublette asked me to interview for episode 32 of his "Art Dealer Diaries."  If you want to hear more about how I got started in Native art along with talk about Tony Da, Richard Spivey, pottery in general and the future of Native art, give it a listen!  You can click here to hear the whole podcast!
Another Award!!  I'm pleased to announce that Spoken Through Clay has won another award!  It has received a Southwest Book Award.  Thanks again to Museum of New Mexico Press, Eric Dobkin and all the artists for helping to make such a beautiful and long-lasting book!
Congrats to Arthur Lopez for his award of the US Artist Grant!  Arthur is known for his New Mexican Santos, retablos, and bultos, along with collaborative work he has made here in the gallery with Russell Sanchez.  This prestigious award also includes a $50,000 unrestricted fellowship for Lopez.  It is thrilling to hear that he continues with such incredible success!  Arthur will be in our Scottsdale gallery on Saturday, March 16, for a showing of new works.  Please stop by and meet him!
We are sad to hear of the passing Carmel Lewis (1947-2019).  She was the youngest daughter of noted Acoma potter Lucy M. Lewis.  
New Addition Highlights!
Upcoming Events!
"Forward-thinking gallerists, museum curators, and clay artists themselves are fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of Native clay arts. In 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."
