Heard Indian Market Show 2021
March 4-6

It's hard to believe that this time last year, was the last major "in-person" event we attended at the Heard Museum Indian Market.  For this year's Heard Market, we have put together an exceptional group of artists over a series of three days.  While the artists will not be present, their work speaks for their continued artistic drive to create amazing are in a time of adversity.

This year, we have a series of shows over three days.  On Thursday, we will feature new pottery by Nathan Youngblood, Tammy Garcia, Al Qoyawayma, and Les Namingha.  The gallery will also be open for the Thursday Night Art Walk until 9 pm. On Friday, we will be featuring the work of Russell Sanchez, Rainy Naha, and Christopher Youngblood.  Finally, on Saturday, we have Chase Kawinhut Earles' creative work with his first show at our gallery entitled, "Past, Present, Future: Caddo Pottery and Indigenous Futurism."  If you are in the area, the gallery will also be open this Sunday, March 7, from 1-5 pm.  Delayed but upcoming; Our showing of work with Juan de la Cruz, Robert Patricio, and Steve Lucas will take place later this month due to firing issues.  We will be sending out an email update to let you know the date. 

Thanks to all the artists for their continued hard work.  It was great to spend a few days in Santa Fe picking up all the pottery for this show and talking with the artists who all wish they could be here!  Let's hope that will change in 2022 and for Indian Market in Santa Fe this summer. 

Please continue to stay safe and healthy.  I hope you enjoy these shows as much as the artists have put them together over the past several months. 
I look forward to hearing from you with any questions or suggestions.

Chase Kawinhut Earles
Chase Kawinhut Earles has put together an exceptional showing of new works.  We have been talking for the past year about how to best tell the story of Caddo pottery to a new audience.  His idea was to create modern forms and match them with historic Caddo pieces.  Of course, what is more iconic than "Star Wars" as a futuristic model with which people are very familiar.  Chase also took the time to write an essay about this new work and the world of Indigenous Futurism.  For me, it's important see such creative work in clay bound with a thoughtful presentation of artistic content.  I look forward to having more of Chase's work in both galleries in the coming years.  Check out the blog on Chase's new work!
A great new book out on Caddo art, culture, and history.  It was published by the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in conjunction with a new exhibition that just opened.  The book is beautifully photographed and contains not just historic works, but contemporary sections on Chase Kawinhut Earles, TC Cannon, Richard Zane Smith, and others.
