The Antique American Indian Art Show Santa Fe, the most anticipated show and sale of historic Indian art of the summer art season, returns August 15–18, bringing together nearly 65 of the world’s most knowledgeable experts in American Indian art and thousands of select historic art objects from indigenous cultures throughout the United States and Canada. Now in its fourth year, it is the largest show of its kind in the world.
The four-day event will take place Tuesday through Friday at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe in the Santa Fe Railyard. The festivities kick off on Tuesday evening, August 15, with an opening gala from 6 to 9 p.m. to benefit New Mexico PBS. The show continues from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, August 16–18. Admission includes a special viewing of Homage to the Square, a groundbreaking exhibit of twenty-five early Navajo rugs and blankets c.1870-1950, juxtaposed against a series of original modern artworks utilizing simple polygon design and complex color interaction.
Visitors will encounter a broad range of premier works by master artisans in visually vibrant displays designed to draw the eye and mind. They will also interact with experts who are passionate about the original objects on display, eagerly sharing knowledge about everything from the aesthetic beauty and symbolism of historic artworks, to tribal techniques and materials, to the cultural and social values the works represent.
