The Hand of Native American Women, Visible at Last
According to a recent New York Times article, “the role of women art-makers in Native communities has gone widely ignored. Now a bold museum show, by and for these women, is shining a light on 1,000 years of their art.”
Several art experts said that the show could help overturn patriarchal attitudes that resonate in the mainstream art world.
“The bulk of interest in the U.S. seems geared toward the trope of the male Native warrior,” said Nancy Mithlo, a professor of gender studies and American Indian studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.”
Local Folkal Gift Fair
I’m excited to be participating in the July event at the Women’s Club in Santa Fe, NM. The Women’s Club is located at 1616 Old Pecos Trail. Show hours are 10am – 5pm on Saturday and Sunday and there’s lots of parking.
