Native American Art - - A BENEVOLENT EVENING -

This year’s Santa Fe In­dian Mar­ket Live Auc­tion and Gala will take place on Satur­day, Au­gust 18 at 6 p.m. A glam­orous and highly an­tic­i­pated mar­ket event, artists do­nate their works to the auc­tion to help raise funds for SWAIA. “It’s one of our big­gest fundrais­ers. With the as­tound­ing gen­eros­ity of our artists, they help us make In­dian Mar­ket hap­pen,” says El­iz­a­beth Kirk, SWAIA board chair. Les­lie Hind­man Auc­tion­eers will be vol­un­teer­ing their time to con­duct the sale for the evening.

“There’s a vast ar­ray of dif­fer­ent art forms that come in. Ev­ery medium is rep­re­sented...bead­work, bas­ketry, jew­elry, fetishes,” Kirk says, with pieces rang­ing from as small as one and a half to two inches long, to 300-pound sculp­tures.

Be­fore the live auc­tion and din­ner in the Lump­kins Ball­room, the evening will be­gin with a silent auc­tion and cock­tail re­cep­tion on the ter­race of the La Fonda Ho­tel. This year, Kirk is es­pe­cially ex­cited for the food, which she says truly show­cases
