A Benevolent EVENING
The 2018 Indian Market Live Auction and Gala features an assortment of artwork and offers guests the chance to experience traditional Native American cuisine.
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
