WEAVINGS

 

 

Visions of the North

Opening Friday, November 25, 2016

     We invite you to open your hearts to a glimpse of the Far North as we celebrate the Holiday Season and the coming of winter. The kickoff to our holiday season is our Thanksgiving Show highlighting the jewelry of Alaskan native artist Dawn Wallace.  Dawn’s newest creations honor Mothers and Babies of the Arctic. 
     We'll also be unveiling new carvings and sculptures in stone, bone and walrus tusk from the Bering Strait in the West to Canada's Nunavut Territory in the East. Experience the amazing talents of Ojibwe basketmakers from Lake Huron and Acho Dene people in the Northwest Territories who combine the beauty of birch bark with porcupine quills to create unique vessels of great beauty.
      The indigenous people of our colder regions know how to exist closely with their natural surroundings; use this holiday season to share and celebrate Northern cultures through the artistic expressions of their people.

       Grant and Betsy Turner

 

    

   As is the case in so many pages of our website, the images below show a small sampling of the amazing arts and crafts we have available in our Vermont shop. On this page, the pieces are all Navajo weavings, and they include some wonders of the past as well as a broad contemporary collection. Visiting us in Vermont will allow you to see and handle all these pieces and more - a broader array of Navajo weavings as well as a huge range of Zapotec pieces from Oaxaca, Mexico that includes everything from area rugs to smaller placemat and coaster-size collectibles. The quality is high, the prices are great, and we hope you enjoy the selection below!
