Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

If you’re a col­lec­tor of Na­tive Amer­i­can art, Santa Fe is where you want to be in Au­gust. Not only is it the month for the largest Na­tive art show in the U.S., but that event, the an­nual In­dian Mar­ket, is pre­ceded by an­tique In­dian art ex­pos, with deal­ers from across the coun­try and our own back­yard ex­hibit­ing rare and unique tribal pieces. On Fri­day, Aug. 12, the White­hawk An­tique In­dian and Ethno­graphic Art Show, now in its 37th year, opens at the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (201 W. Marcy St.) with a 6 p.m. wine and hors d’oeu­vres pre­view party. The show hosts em­i­nent deal­ers, many of whom have re­turned an­nu­ally since its in­cep­tion in the 1970s.

Deal­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing in the White­hawk show this year in­clude Throck­mor­ton Fine Art, Lewis Bo­brick An­tiques, Man­i­tou Gal­leries, David Cook Gal­leries, Ross Traut Gallery, Robert Mor­ris Fine Art, and many more. The di­verse se­lec­tion of arts and crafts in­cludes Navajo weav­ings, jew­elry, his­toric pot­tery, Navajo sil­ver, Hopi katsi­nas, cloth­ing, Pue­blo drums, bas­kets, hides, util­i­tar­ian and cer­e­mo­nial objects, beaded items, and masks, much of it dating to the 19th and early 20th cen­turies. Vis­i­tors can find a Cheyenne knife case, per­haps, or an Ojibwe ban­dolier. Walk away with a Haida carv­ing, a Río Grande blan­ket, a Yaqui mask, a Zuni fetish, an Acoma olla, or a Sioux pipe stem and bowl.

Tick­ets for the open­ing night pre­view are $75 and in­clude two-day show ad­mis­sion, a com­pli­men­tary drink, and an op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase items be­fore the show opens to the pub­lic. The show con­tin­ues Saturday, Aug. 13, through Mon­day, Aug. 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Daily ad­mis­sion is $10; a two-day pass is $17. All tick­ets are sold at the door (cash or check only).
