Maria Samora named Living Treasure
SANTA FE, NM
The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture has named Taos jeweler Maria Samora as the 2018 MIAC Living Treasure. She will be honored for her artistic contributions, service to her community at the 14th annual Native Treasures Art Market, held annually during Memorial Day weekend. Samora is known for her minimalist lines, interdisciplinary approach and modern designs, and she often uses unexpected materials like diamonds, guava moonstone and African opal in her jewelry. MIAC will present a special exhibition of Samora’s work that opens to the public April 8.
