A Twenty-Five Year Commitment to Classic and Contemporary Native Art

October 2021 Gallery Newsletter

October is always an exciting month for King Galleries.  It was in October 1996 that I opened my first gallery.  It was a nerve-racking but exciting event.  It's hard to believe that 25 years have passed since that opening day.  I have much to be grateful for;  I have five books published, two gallery spaces, an exceptional group of artists, and clients. In addition, I have gratitude for everyone who has made this more than just a business, but the perfect way to be involved in the arts!

I look forward to at least another 20 years! 

This Autumn, we have three months of exciting events in Santa Fe.  In October, we have a showing of new works by Russell Sanchez and Nancy Youngblood.  In November, Jarred Tso will be debuting his installation of work for his Master's in Fine Arts-Ceramics.  Finally, in December we have a show featuring new works in clay by Kaa Follwell and Stephanie Tafoya. In addition, Jennifer Tafoya and Ty Moquino will be here at the gallery for a pottery demonstration in December.

Our plans are coming together for the Winter/Spring season in Scottsdale.  Of course, we will have our annual show during the Heard Indian Market, along with showings of new works by Jennnifer Tafoya, Chris Youngblood, Susan Folwell, Roseta Santiago, and more!  It's going to be an exciting year ahead!

Please continue to stay safe and healthy.

Gallery News...
It was exciting to have a group from the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College stop by the gallery to talk about contemporary Pueblo pottery.  The Hood Museum has been actively adding great Native pottery to its permanent collection.  
It's wonderful to see our new ads in Native Art Magazine!  In the age of the decline of magazines, it is exciting to be part of one that is growing!  The best part is you can subscribe through their app and view the magazine on your phone! 
The Santa Fe group, "Friends of Indian Art" arranged their first "in-person" meeting since 2020 at our Santa Fe gallery.  Thanks to Jennifer Tafoya and Ty Moquino for their pottery demo.  I gave a brief (well, probably not brief enough!) talk about the gallery, collecting, and upcoming trends, artists, and events in the world of Native pottery. 
I love to see when an artist takes the time to look at historic pieces and use them as a foundation for their current work.  This jar by Christopher Youngblood has a series of Buffalo designs around the neck of the piece.  This style of buffalo was used by his great-grandparent Margaret & Alcario Tafoya in their 1930s polychrome pottery. On the right, you can see an image of their plate with a buffalo in the center surrounded by a water serpent.  Ninety years later, Chris has brought this imagery back in his current work, continuing a family legacy.
Do you follow us on Instagram? We post new pottery and paintings every couple of days.  I try to focus on both historic and contemporary work in the gallery.  Our "Instagram Stories" are daily updates that capture artist visits, new posts, gallery views, and even a few amazing Santa Fe (and Scottsdale!) sunsets!  It's a dynamic and personal way to see what is going on each day at our galleries! So if you are on Instagram, please take the time, and follow us! Click here to follow us on Instagram!
