SANTA FE, NM
The second annual Sovereign Santa Fe art exhibition will be in full swing this August, through the efforts of FarahNheight Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The show, curated by artist Tony Abeyta (Navajo) and collaboration between gallery owner Gregory Farah and artist Randy L. Barton (Diné), has culminated in a collection that highlights the unique genre of contemporary Native American art.
Sovereign is quite special and thrilling, as many up and coming and mid-career Native artists delve into the relationship between traditional and contemporary Native art. There’s been a battle to represent the Native voice more in the art world, as well as some push-back from the Native community that wishes to protect sacred imagery.
