We arrived at the Plaza at 8:30 and already some of the parking lots were full and the streets were crowded with people enjoying the Indian Market.  I noticed Adrian Wall from Jemez Pueblo carefully dusting off one of his pieces of sculpture with a fine brush.  He cordially stopped his work to answer my questions, indicating that he started art work when he was very young and has been learning and perfecting his craft for 22 years.  Since he has been showing his work at the annual Indian Market for 12 years, I'd consider him a pro!

  1. So much intricacy. I guess you can never be "perfect" in art. You can only keep striving for it. Nice shot.

  2. Yes it was very crowded, more so than last year. It was a good sales day for a few artist we know. One sold out completely and another sold two pieces of pottery totaling a little over 13k. We going back today to try and get some better shots. We got there the same time, did you have your Visual St. Paul hat on, I kept looking for it.

  3. We go tot the Heard Museum Indian Market each spring in Phoenix, which I understand to be, along with the Santa Fe Indian Market, the two best exhibitions of Native American art in the country. I am sure you and thousands of others had a wonderful time, and many undoubtedly returned home with new treasures and hopefully the artisans returned home with the income necessary to support their creativity.

  4. I hope they all have good sales days. With this economy, they probably rely on these few days to make or break the year.

  7. I'm assuming he crafted this sculpture from one piece of wood - it is remarkable! I do envy such talent!
