Collectively, these artists have received distinctions from the most prestigious institutions in America including the Smithsonian and the National Museum of the American Indian to the Heard Museum and the Santa Fe Indian Market. A reception for the artists will be held from 5:00 to 7:30 pm.
Beginning on Friday, August 19, the gallery presents work by its entire selection of distinguished artists and hosts a reception from 5:00 to 7:30 pm for this all-inclusive show.

On Monday, August 22 from 9:00-10:30 am, the gallery will host a brunch and reception with respected Navajo sculptor, Pablita Abeyta, who helped establish the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian. As the Congressional liaison for the Smithsonian, Abeyta worked tirelessly to found the museum, which hosted the largest gathering of Native American communities in history at its opening in 2004.
Sorrel Sky Gallery owner, Shanan Campbell Wells, offered, “Each year Indian Market reveals a new level of creativity and originality. To have so much talent in one place is a privilege to witness. What an honor, to once again have with us in Santa Fe, some of the most sought-after Native American artists in the world.”
