NEW MEXICO HISTORY NOTE: "Even though Dolorita Vigil (1883-1918) died during the influenza epidemic of 1918, long before pueblo pottery was in the mainstream as a collectible, she is still recognized as one of the finest potters of the early 20th century from San Ildefonso Pueblo. She was a daughter of Alfonso Vigil (1856 -) and Cipriana Martinez Vigil (c.1860 -) and a sister of famous painter Romando Vigil (1902-1978). Other losses of the time were Martina Vigil, who passed away in 1916, and Florentino Montoya, who passed away in the influenza epidemic of 1918 as well. Martina was an aunt of Dolorita and was the one who taught Dolorita the techniques of pottery production." — Adobe Gallery, http://ow.ly/QG6c3.

Recent email from the Adobe Gallery:
We have just received a collection of eighteen katsina dolls that have been reported to us as formerly in the Fred Harvey Advertising Department collection. Two of the dolls have painted on their backsides a notice to that effect, however none of the others do. Another clue to the collection is the square black pedestals to which most of the dolls are attached. It is a known fact that those were a Fred Harvey trait. The dolls are attached with screws from the pedestal to their feet. There is no written documentation with this collection. We cannot guarantee the Fred Harvey provenance on any but the two that are stenciled.

Here's the link to the pictures: https://bit.ly/3gLdrPQ

Does anyone know the history of black pedestals?

Thanks to our fans Carolyn O'Bagy Davis and Nancy Colvert for sharing this information with me. Appreciate it.

Ongoing Special Exhibit: Fritz Scholder. This show features lithograph, monotype, and cyanotype works from the influential artist, Fritz Scholder. These incredible images mirror the career and lifetime of the artist in their irony, duality, and inspiration. From the beginning of this career, Scholder struggled to represent his reality and that of his subject matter. Scholder did not consider himself an Indian and yet he was widely regarded as a leader of the New American Indian Art Movement. In a 2001 interview Scholder described himself as a "natural optimist, which might be surprising, because I like the dark side of things."

Many years ago, I wandered into a shop in Albuquerque and was mesmerized by a Maria Martinez blackware bowl. I purchased the bowl on layaway, and as my interest grew, I began buying and selling small pots and Kachina dolls. Nearly fifty years later, my life is centered around my passion for Native pottery. I am fortunate and proud to be able to run a business devoted not only to selling Native artwork, but also to educating collectors and admirers about its history and cultural significance.

Our event on December 17 is a celebration of Adobe Gallery’s 45th birthday. We’ll be hosting a reception at the gallery from 5 to 7 pm. We look forward to getting together with our friends and clients to express our gratitude for their continued interest and support.

The world's largest Navajo Rug - La Posada Hotel Winslow, Arizona 03/03/2021

The world's largest Navajo Rug - La Posada Hotel Winslow, Arizona

In 1932 Lorenzo Hubbell of the famous Hubbell Trading Post
network commissioned Sam and Julia Joe to weave the world's
largest Navajo Rug for promotional purposes. It has not been
seen in public in over 50 years. Allan Affeldt purchased the
rug in 2012. He donated it to the Winslow Art Trust and it will
be displayed at the Route 66 Art Museum at La Posada Hotel
in Winslow, Arizona. On this day the descendants of the Joe
family have been invited to a private reunion at La Posada.
This event is especially touching because in attendance is
Emma Joe who as a child carded wool for two years to help
make the rug. This will be the first time most of the members
of the Joe family will see and touch the rug.

🇺🇸Native American Nacimientos Special Exhibit:
This Special Exhibit Native American Nacimientos includes pottery and wood nativity sets made by artists from a variety of Native American Nations (Pueblo and Navajo), most of whom are now deceased. Highlights include a 17-figure Nacimiento by legendary Cochiti Pueblo potter Helen Cordero and another set made by Manuel Vigil, a Tesuque Pueblo artist who is widely recognized as the creator of the very first Native American pottery nativity or Nacimiento. The viewer will enjoy works in a wide variety of styles and mediums within this collection of Native American Nacimientos. "Nacimiento" is the Spanish word for nativity scene or crèche. This art form has been popular in Europe since the fifteenth century. The first known Native American-made nativities appeared in the late 1950s. In 1961, the International Museum of Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico exhibited the extensive nativity scene collection of Alexander Girard, which included two sets. The exhibit increased interest in the art form, encouraging Native American artists to create their own works. By the 1970s, artists from a variety of Native Nations were creating and selling Nacimientos. Today, these unique sets are globally appreciated and enthusiastically collected.
