Opening: Friday, October 1, 2021 6-7:30pm
Opening October 1 and on view through November 28 at Amy Kaslow Gallery, Native Hands: Fine Folk Art brings you world class works from artists around the globe who innovate on generations-old practices, and train others to carry them forward. Creatives from tribal and ethnic groups with rich cultural heritage share their stunning collections — canvases, metals, woods, stone and clay — highly prized by leading patrons of the arts. We’re partnering with the International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe, whose professionals and seasoned advisors reach across the globe to assess folk art’s economic impact and find the most skilled artisans likely to pay it forward. We’ve tapped into this brimming talent to select simply the finest painted, woven, sculpted and polished pieces. Think big, bold installations like stunningly modern woven Armenian silks and smaller gems such as the intricate expressions captured in the Mexican clay heads. Storyboards move visitors through with crisp contexts about each artist, community and country represented.
