Artist Spotlight - Jared J. Chavez. “Along with my yearly schedule of shows where I sell my designs, I’ve also made it a point to educate the public about my work. Growing up in my father’s studio, I always saw just how much of himself he put into his designs and how sometimes he was met with disbelief as to how much work was put into his pieces. I found this to be a similar case when I entered the business, as the general public only sees the finished piece. For that reason, though in person demonstrations and self-produced video mini-documentaries, we’ve made it a point to show the skill, time, and passion that goes into every design. I continually strive to evolve my work and hold every design to the exacting standards that my father established when he created Chavez Studio 50 years ago.” - (source: chavezstudio.com)

Artist Spotlight - Karma Henry (Paiute/Italian/Portugeuse) - “I hope I can also impress upon those who meet me and/or see my work, that Native peoples are immeasurably tied to the land. While we live in a modern world, our beliefs reflect what we’ve been taught historically and traditionally, and as a Native artist, I think those beliefs are important in the context of our tribal communities, Native art community, and in the greater Art community. I want to recognize the designs of our ancestors while also exploring my interpretation of the patterns and imagery around me. “ -Karma Henry

SO excited to read this new Artist Highlight in American Art about the work of artist Thomas Tapia (Tesuque Pueblo) who will be a part of the Native Treasures Art Market this year! We hope to see you all there this Memorial Day weekend!

"A Tewa Native from the Pueblo of Tesuque in New Mexico, Tapia comes from an extensive line of watercolor artists that stretches back to the 1880s with the birth of his late grandfather, Tomás Vigil. His four uncles were also highly regarded watercolorists, as was his brother, Joseph Tapia."

Lynda Teller Pete and Barbara Teller Ornelas(Diné) are this year’s recipients of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture Legacy Award, recognizing a lifetime of contributions promoting Native arts and culture.

Lynda Teller Pete and Barbara Teller Ornelas were both born into the Tábąąhá (Water Edge Clan) and born for the Tó’aheedlíinii (Two Waters Flow Together Clan). The Teller sisters have dedicated their lives to Navajo/Diné weaving—serving as both artists and educators.

“Navajo/ Diné weaving is a guiding force in our lives. Our earliest memories are of waking up to the sounds of our mother and grandmothers working at their looms at our ancestral home in Newcomb, New Mexico on the Navajo Nation,” said Lynda Teller Pete and Barbara Teller Ornelas. “The weavers who came before us created incredible works of art during the most troubling times in our people’s history and inspire us the most. We use our platform to champion the women and men in our family, as well as extended members in our community, all of whom made us the weavers we are.”

Lynda Teller Pete is a 2022-2023 Luce Indigenous Knowledge fellow and the director of equity and inclusion on the board of the Textile Society of America. She regularly shows at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Heard Museum Guild Indian Market, and co-teaches, with her sister, Navajo weaving workshops throughout the world. Teller Pete is the Chair of the Advisory Committee for MIAC’s upcoming exhibition, Horizons: Weaving Between the Lines with Diné Textiles, opening July 16, 2023.

Barbara Teller Ornelas is a 2023 United States Artists fellow. She has received the Master-Apprentice Award from the Southwest Folklife Alliance, the Innovation Award from the Heard Museum Guild Indian Art Fair and Market, and several best of show awards at markets throughout the Southwest. Her work is held in the collections of the Arizona State Museum, the British Museum, the Denver Art Museum, the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, and the U.S. Embassy of Uzbekistan, among others.

“The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture is honored to celebrate the recipients of this year’s MIAC Living Treasure and Legacy Awards. Their artistic talents and deep commitment to their communities are visible in everything they do.”
- Polly Nordstrand, Executive Director, Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture (MIAC) is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2023 Living Treasure Award. This award is part of the annual MIAC Native Treasures Art Market and honors Native American artists who have made outstanding artistic contributions to the field of Indigenous arts and culture.

Anthony Lovato (Kewa/Santo Domingo Pueblo) is the 2023 recipient of the MIAC Living Treasure award. Lovato is a master of tufa metal casting who is known for his corn design jewelry and canteens.

Lovato grew up around jewelry, first working with metal in 1973, and becoming a dedicated metalsmith in 1984. He attended the Institute of American Indian Arts, where he focused his studies in metalwork and museum studies, and then worked at the Museum of Northern Arizona, also taking jewelry classes at Northern Arizona University and the University of Colorado.

Lovato has received dozens of awards—from the Santa Fe Indian Market, the Red Earth Nation Show, the Eight Northern Indian Pueblos Show, The Heard Guild Indian Market, and others—and has been featured in several magazines throughout the United States. A fifth-generation jeweler, his primary influences include Allan Houser, Charles Loloma, and his grandfather, Leo Coriz.

“As for the years forthcoming, my plans are to keep this traditional technique of tufa sand casting alive by passing it down to the next generation, as it was passed on down to me,” said Anthony Lovato.

As a compliment to his artistic practice, Lovato is dedicated to working within his community, serving as an advocate for language revitalization, education, and the power of art to facilitate healing.
