Southwest Indian Art Fair 2014



It was another pleasant sunny day in Arizona and my wife and I headed downtown to attend the Southwest Indian Art Fair on the grounds of the Arizona State Museum. 

Tent after tent sported Native American art from carvings and jewelry to paintings and golf ball markers.


One booth featured a demonstration by a mask carver and another by a flint chipper..



Weavers of all ages showed off their skills.





In another corner of the grounds was a stage for hourly performances of native dances.

 
 The singers were joyful.

 

The rhythm section jammed.
 
 
 
Young and old performed together and
 
 
 
 
the balance in the basket dance was impeccable.
 
 
 
 
 


 
  Thanks again to all the artists and performers who made our day a delight.  With a little bit of luck we will be able to return again next year.
