Navajo Textiles as Modern Art Opens Mar 11

From weaving a blanket or rug for practical and personal need to creating weavings for the trade market and as a source of income, the perception of Modern Art Design in Navajo textiles has evolved over time.  

Navajo Textiles Modern Art is an exhibition of over 60 Navajo Textiles spanning 137 years from the 1880s to the present. This exhibit will be on view at Nizhoni Ranch Gallery from March 11 - June 30th.

These special textiles, rugs, and weavings will demonstrate how Modern Art in the eye of the weaver has changed over the years. 

"Our inspiration for this show is really to share important Navajo Art with the public. Today Modern Art is all over the map - we want to share these designs with those who may not have ever been exposed to them before." 

As always, our gallery is open for you. Contact us to schedule an appointment. We look forward to sharing this delightful exhibit with you.
