Na­tive Trea­sures In­dian Arts Fes­ti­val at the Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter

Paint­ings, sculp­ture, jew­elry, tex­tiles, and other mu­seum-qual­ity works by more than 200 in­vited artists from over 40 tribes and pue­b­los are for sale at the 11th an­nual Na­tive Trea­sures In­dian Arts Fes­ti­val, from Fri­day, May 22, through Sun­day, May 24, at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201 W. Marcy Ave.). At a 5:30 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, which costs $100 per per­son, guests can min­gle with the artists, in­clud­ing bead-worker Teri Greeves (Kiowa) and her sis­ter, jew­elry-maker Keri Ataumbi (Kiowa), who will be pre­sented with Mu­seum of In­dian Arts Living Trea­sures awards by last year’s Living Trea­sures, Joe and Althea Ca­jero. Greeves be­gan bead­ing at age eight, on the Wind River Reser­va­tion in Wy­oming, and is mostly self­taught. Her work in­cludes beaded ob­jects, such as Con­verse sneak­ers, and beaded “paint­ings” on can­vas. Ataumbi’s dis­tinc­tive metal and stone jew­elry has a con­tem­po­rary aes­thetic that blends the tra­di­tional with cut­ting-edge wear­able art. Also in­cluded in the fes­ti­val are works by pain­ters No­cona Burgess (Co­manche), Deb­bie Lu­jan (Taos Pue­blo), and Dolores Purdy (Caddo); weaver Rena Be­gay (Navajo); jew­elry-mak­ers Richard and Jared Chavez (San Felipe) — slated to at­tend the re­cep­tion — and many oth­ers. The art show be­gins the morn­ing of Satur­day, May 23, with early-bird ar­rival at 9 a.m. ($20) and gen­eral ad­mis­sion from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.($10); all tick­ets are avail­able at the door. On Sun­day, the fes­ti­val runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and ad­mis­sion is free. Pro­ceeds from the sales revert to the artists, and the artists in turn do­nate a por­tion of the monies to the Mu­seum of In­dian Arts and Cul­ture.
