Native American Art - - IN THIS ISSUE -


Around ev­ery cor­ner at the White­hawk An­tique In­dian & Ethno­graphic Art Show col­lec­tors and lovers of Na­tive Amer­i­can art will find a breadth of historic items that span sev­eral decades and re­gions. The an­tiques are of­ten fresh to the mar­ket as well as hav­ing in­trigu­ing de­signs, al­low­ing pa­trons to find unique gems to add to their col­lec­tions.

“We have a lot of se­ri­ous col­lec­tors who come to see what kinds of things our deal­ers have been saving all year, and we have new col­lec­tors,” says Mar­cia Ber­ridge, pro­ducer of the show. “One of things I’ve no­ticed about deal­ers is if some­one shows in­ter­est—newer col­lec­tors or sea­soned—they are will­ing to share their knowl­edge and ed­u­cate col­lec­tors about what makes a piece bet­ter than an­other piece, more de­sir­able, what to look for. That’s a huge part of the show.”

Cel­e­brat­ing its 40th year, the White­hawk An­tique In­dian & Ethno­graphic Art Show, which takes place at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, will kick off Au­gust 10 with an open­ing night party from 6 to 9 p.m. This tick­eted evening, with hors d’oeu­vres, drinks and en­ter­tain­ment, al­lows at­ten­dees the first chance to pe­ruse the more than 90 dealer booths. The show is then open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from Au­gust 11 to 13.

Deal­ers in this year’s show in­clude Na­tive Jack­ets, Road­side Amer­ica’s Gallery of the West, Marcy Burns Amer­i­can In­dian Arts, Terry de­wald Amer­i­can In­dian Art, Frank Hill Tribal Arts, Mys­tic War­riors, John Mol­loy Gallery, Ter­ri­to­rial In­dian Arts & An­tiques, Chipeta Trad­ing Com­pany, Vicki Turbeville South­west­ern Jew­elry and the Historic Toadlena Trad­ing Post, among oth­ers.

Don Siegel, owner of Chipeta Trad­ing Com­pany says he is thrilled to par­tic­i­pate the show again, adding, “Whether you are a first-time col­lec­tor or sea­soned vet­eran, this show pro­vides the best of the best.” At his booth, col­lec­tors will find items such as a Co­manche child’s toy cra­dle from the last quar­ter of the 19th cen­tury and circa 1885 Crow child’s pants with flo­ral bead­work that were once in the Ed Gar­rett col­lec­tion.

Also look­ing for­ward to the show again this year are Deb and Al­ston Neal, own­ers of Ter­ri­to­rial In­dian Arts & An­tiques in Scotts­dale, Ari­zona. “We show­case the finest an­tique Pue­blo pot­tery, Hopi katsi­nas, Navajo textiles and of course historic turquoise jew­elry,” Deb Neal says. Among their no­table works this year will be a circa 1910 to 1920 San Ilde­fenso olla, a circa 1880s Tran­si­tional Navajo tex­tile and a col­lec­tion of early 20th-cen­tury sil­ver squash blos­som neck­laces.

Na­tive Jack­ets, lo­cated on the Plaza in Santa Fe, will ex­hibit a small-scale ce­ramic bear by Tony Da as well as a circa 1930 rug by Daisy Taugelchee. Vicki Turbeville presents an ar­ray of jew­elry, in­clud­ing a sec­ond phase Navajo concho belt with seven con­chos from around 1890 to 1900 and a buckle cre­ated circa 1910 to 1920. Dealer Ja­son Bald­win will fea­ture Prairie In­dian items, from circa 1830s to 1940s, at his booth that in­cludes a match­ing war­rior shirt, leg­gings and moc­casins.
