Waddell Gallery and Inn of the Anasazi have partnered for an exclusive four-day event in August.
SWAIA Indian Market might be virtual this year, but Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe has teamed up with Waddell Gallery for a safe and intimate in-person showcase of gorgeous Native American jewelry at the hotel August 13-16, 2020.
The exclusive four-day event features the works of more than a dozen master Native American jewelers and other accomplished makers. Notable artists include the late Charles Loloma, an influential Hopi Native American artist who popularized the use of gold and gemstones; and Preston Monongye, a leader in the “New Indian Jewelry” movement of the 1960s and 1970s.
Also on view are pieces from artists participating in Virtual Indian Market, including Jared Chavez, Perry Shorty, and Darryl Dean Begay.
Visitors can schedule a private-viewing appointment and meet jewelers Perry Shorty, Wes Willie, White Buffalo, and Boyd Tsosie in person. Viewing timeslots can be booked through the front desk at Inn of the Anasazi.
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, and dating back three generations to the 1930s, Waddell Gallery is one of the premier Native American jewelry galleries in the country. It features a range of works from established masters to emerging artists.
Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi is one of Santa Fe’s premier boutique hotels. It’s an upscale place right downtown to stay, dine, or just have cocktails and small plates at the bar and lounge.
