The 95th Santa Fe Indian Market Transforms the City of Santa Fe, with nearly 900 of the continent’s finest Native American artists showing their work in booths filling the Santa Fe Plaza and surrounding streets. The Indian Market is the largest and most prestigious Native American fine art show in the world.
Holly Wilson (Delaware Nation/Cherokee) is a contemporary multi-media artist. She uses the figure as a vehicle to lure the viewer into her stories. Story by story we learn more about the artist, about ourselves, about the ties that bind and the threads that weave together stories to reveal a larger cultural narrative and identity. She tells stories that are sacred and precious, personal and universal, powerful and at times volatile.
The exhibition features new and recent multi-media works in sculpture, installation, and photography.
The accompanying catalog includes essays by Jennifer C. Vigil and heather ahtone and illustrates all the works in the exhibition.
