Native Treasures Art Market and Auction | Discover Indigenous Art Markets in Santa Fe | Santa Fe Art |

Every year, over Memorial Day weekend, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) hosts a spectacular line-up of over 200 Indigenous artists, all specially invited to showcase their museum-quality artwork at the Santa Fe Convention Center. A live auction is included in the event – which consists of jewelry, pottery, sculpture, two-dimensional art, fashion, carvings, basketry, beadwork and textiles – with all proceeds from sales going to support the artists and their artistic endeavors.

Participating artists represent a wide array of tribes and pueblos, all working in a wide range of art forms, from traditional to contemporary. The entertainment reflects this diversity, as well, and this year’s lineup is a prime example, with Grammy Award-winning musicians the Black Eagle Singers from the Jemez Pueblo, and the Zuni Olla Maidens, Tesuque Pueblo Dance Group, and more. The Native Treasures Art Market and Auction takes place May 27 & 28, 2023, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The event kicks off this year with the inaugural Native Treasure Night Market, Friday, May 26, 2023, from 5 – 8 p.m. This event provides ample opportunity for early shoppers to get in and experience the Market with other hard-core collectors. It also becomes the backdrop for the presentation of the prestigious MIAC Living Treasure award, which honors Native American artists who have made outstanding artistic contributions to the field of Indigenous arts and culture.

I say that to distinguish him from the legion of digital-age shutter jocks who have proliferated like mold in a forgotten tub of potato salad ever since Adobe released its first version of Photoshop and Nikon put a scanning element in the back of one of its venerable SLRs. A series of his studies of Georgia O’Keeffe’s beloved Black Place in the Bisti Badlands of Northern New Mexico were exhibited last month at … Read More
