Nampeyo Family Retrospective

On Friday, August 9TH 2019, Steve Elmore Indian Art presents an exhibition and sale of Nampeyo Family Pottery from 1885 to 2019. The show features outstanding Hopi ceramics by Nampeyo and her many descendants, including her daughters, Annie, Nellie and Fannie, and her grand-daughters, Rachel, Daisy, and Juanita Healing. Contemporary work by the three Sahmie daughters of Priscilla Namingha will also be featured. Current Nampeyo Family Potters will be present with their work.

For over 130 years, Nampeyo's Sikyatki Revival Art Movement has grown and nourished the modern art world with its graceful, elegant forms and intriguing abstract designs. Nampeyo?s early creations were widely marketed in the late 19th and early 20th century as contemporary examples of modern art. Museums, universities, galleries and collectors cherished her work and took it all over the world, including many museums in America as well as in Berlin, and Oslo. Her work was exhibited in Paris as early as 1885.
Come celebrate this living tradition of modern art from the Southwest with us. We look forward to hosting you. Refreshments will be served. The show will be up through October 1st, 2019.
