SWAIA mem­ber­ship has its ben­e­fits

Native American Art - - NEWS -

Be­ing a mem­ber of SWAIA lets peo­ple sup­port Na­tive arts and artists year round. All lev­els of mem­ber­ship, which start at just $75, gain in­di­vid­u­als an in­vi­ta­tion to the an­nual meet­ing. Other perks in­clude 10 per­cent off of SWAIA mer­chan­dise and ser­vices at Na­tive Amer­i­can Art Ap­praisals, and a week­end pass to the Win­ter In­dian Mar­ket. Higher-tier mem­ber­ships also in­clude ac­cess to In­dian Mar­ket’s Fri­day pre­view and tick­ets to the best of show cer­e­mony. The or­ga­ni­za­tion also of­fers business mem­ber­ships, which in­clude the same perks as the in­di­vid­ual mem­ber­ship, in ad­di­tion to the pos­si­bil­ity of ac­knowl­edge­ment in the af­ter-mar­ket thank-you ad, in­clu­sion in the In­dian Mar­ket ban­ner and booth guide, list­ings on the SWAIA web­site and more.

“Our mem­ber­ship pro­gram is an op­por­tu­nity for in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses to sup­port Na­tive Amer­i­can art and artists. It is also an op­por­tu­nity to stay in touch with us year-round, to ex­pe­ri­ence the In­dian Mar­ket in Au­gust and the Win­ter In­dian Mar­ket in De­cem­ber,” says mem­ber­ship and vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor Tam­mie Tou­ch­ine. “The or­ga­ni­za­tion strives ev­ery year to con­tinue our one of a kind events and we rely on booth fees, donors, spon­sors and mem­ber­ships to en­sure our mis­sion re­mains. Be­com­ing a mem­ber of the South­west­ern As­so­ci­a­tion for In­dian Arts is an easy way to help en­sure the con­tin­u­ance of the Santa Fe In­dian Mar­ket for an­other 100 years.”
