The Tucson Indian Center’s First Annual Southwest Indian Arts Event
Notably, this market’s first show takes place on March 19th and 20th, 2016. In particular, it features many local and regional silversmiths and arts and crafts. Furthermore, it takes place at a casino, just South of Tucson, Arizona.
Most importantly, Artist Jolene Bird of the Kewa (formally Santo Domingo) Pueblo, with picture below, receives the Grand Artist’s Choice Award. Consequently, this award comes from judging by fellow artists attending this event.
Indeed, the award winning piece is a California gourd which Jolene Bird adorns. Most importantly, it has a multitude of meticulously inlay hand cut spiny oyster, turquoise, and jet. As an illustration, Jolene tells us that this stunning piece takes 6 months to complete.
Finally, Christy, of Tucson Indian Jewelry, is in the picture next to Artist Jolene Bird
Most importantly, Jolene Bird is a prestigious Kewa artist, with examples of her work on display at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington!
