Santa Fe Indian Market – This Weekend! (August 23rd and 24th)

2144-IMtm-01I have been working really hard for this show! One-of-a-kind fine art pieces take time to make, I wish I could post everything I am creating as I make it, but there just isn’t time.

To be in this show has been a dream of mine – and it’s coming true! I am honored and grateful to be one of the chosen artists to be at this event.

This is a big deal!

I hope to see some of you there. If you read my blog, stop by and say “Hello.”

Santa Fe, New Mexico

“The Santa Fe Indian Market is a 92-year-old Native art market. It is the largest and most prestigious Native arts market in the world and the largest cultural event in the southwest. The yearly event is held during the third weekend of August. Over 1,100 Native artists from the U.S. and Canada sell their artwork. The Indian Market attracts 150,000 visitors to Santa Fe from all over the world. Buyers, collectors and gallery owners come to Indian Market to take advantage of the opportunity to buy directly from the artists. For many visitors, this is a rare opportunity to meet the artists and learn about contemporary Indian arts and cultures. Quality and authenticity are the hallmarks of the Santa Fe Indian Market.”

2013 in review – Thanks for a Great Year!

ring (c) Holly Troy2013 was a great year. I had some evolutionary leaps in my creative process and am excited to see where next year takes me.

I also had some firsts last year. I showed at The Heard Museum in Phoenix, the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, the Natural History Museum of Utah in Salt Lake City, and at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles. All of the shows were juried.

reticulated AAA.300dpi.sorensen copy.htrAt the Prescott Art Museum Indian Market my Hollow Form Reticulated Silver Necklace won an award in the jewelry category.

I also proudly donated a piece for the 18th Annual Night for life Gala, a fundraising event for the Southwest Center for HIV/AIDS.

One of the most exciting things for me was traveling to Holland and speaking at the Netherlands Association for North American Indians (NANAI) 40th Anniversary Celebration. I spoke about my life and work, Yavapai-Apache history, and gave a metals demonstration.

In 2010, Leo Van Kints of President of NANAI and Jan Ketelaars, Dutch film maker, came to the United States to make a documentary film called On the Same Ground about modern North American Indians. They spent four days filming and interviewing my family and me in northern Arizona. Parts of the film where I was featured were finished this year, and it looks like they are intending to finish interviewing and editing in 2014.

silver lace cuff.AMy work continues to evolve. I am looking forward to showing in more places in 2014, meeting more people, and of course, expanding my repertoire of jewelry and printmaking.

Looking forward to seeing you in the year to come!

Happy New Year! All the best for health, love, abundance, creativity, and happiness!

Thank you for reading.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Pueblo Grand Museum Indian Market logoI’ll be exhibiting at the Indian Market this weekend! Juried show! Find unique pieces for the holidays. Visit me and check out my new work.

I was at this show last year, and the site is beautiful. There is something relaxing about the desert this time of year. The light and the colors are soft, and they shift throughout the day. The earth is almost a golden wheat color, with shades of pinks and purples and deep oranges that shift throughout the day.

The Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary is proud to host the 37th Annual Indian Market on December 14 & 15, 2013. The market will offer an array of activities for children and adults, including exceptional American Indian Music and dance, a variety of native foods, sweet and savory fry bread, other treats and authentic American Indian fine art, collectibles and cultural exhibits. A perfect place for last minute holiday shopping.

Pueblo Grand Museum Kick-Off EventA new feature has been added to this year’s market, Ki:him – community village where cultural demonstrations and presentations will take place, providing guests with hands on access to everyday activities past and present and opportunities to interact and learn about the culture through storytelling, music, song, dance, games and native foods. Ki:him is the O’odham word for community village. While representatives of the four Southern communities of the O’odham people, descendants of the ancient Hohokam will be participating in the Ki:him, there will also be artists and representatives from various other tribes participating in the community village as well.

Come to the 37th Annual Pueblo Grande Museum Indian Market it’s a perfect place for last minute holiday shopping and a great opportunity to learn more about American Indian history and culture, past and present.

This Weekend! American Indian Arts 2013 Marketplace at the Autry: Juried Show

logo_AIAM_2013 (2)This weekend, November 9th & 10th, I’ll be in Los Angeles showing at American Indian Arts 2013 Marketplace at the Autry.

The American Indian Arts Marketplace is a high end art festival featuring over 40 tribes represented by 180 artists. It is Southern California’s largest Native American art market. This is a juried exhibition.

From the American Indian Arts Marketplace Overview:

This year, in recognition of the Autry’s 25th anniversary exhibition Art of the West, the Marketplace explores themes of contemporary Native American art in all its iterations, while still honoring traditional roots.

“The Marketplace attracts people who are interested in Native art beyond the museum collections. They’re interested in your work but they’re also interested in you, and in supporting a sense of community. That mindset is at the core of Native art shows like the Autry’s,” said Mateo Romero, a Marketplace artist whose mixed-media piece War Music II is part of the Autry’s permanent collection and featured in Art of the West.

“Celebrate native arts and culture at the Natural History Museum of Utah. The Indian Art Market is a juried show featuring the work of regional native artists. Over 20 selected artists will display and sell their original work ranging from jewelry, beadwork, sculpture, painting and more.
