Great friendships often lead to great collaborations. This is clearly the case when it comes to Shanan Campbell and Jackson Clark.
Jackson Clark II, of Toh-Atin Gallery, has been trading Navajo weavings for decades. The Clark family founded Toh-Atin in 1957, representing one of the finest selections of Navajo art and Navajo weavings in the country. Shanan Campbell, owner of Sorrel Sky, worked at Toh-Atin for many years before opening Sorrel Sky. Starting out as part of the sales team, she eventually took on the role of managing director. When Shanan made the decision to open her own gallery, Jackson offered his full support. Throughout the years, he has continued to provide valuable insights and encouragement.
Which brings us to today. Sorrel Sky Gallery is proud to announce a partnership with Toh-Atin Gallery. This collaboration will bring a selection of antique and contemporary Navajo weaving to Sorrel Sky Gallery’s Santa Fe location at 125 W Palace Ave.
A variety of both antique and contemporary Navajo weaving from Toh-Atin Gallery will be offered for sale at Sorrel Sky Santa Fe, from now through October. These authentic, quality Navajo weavings—both floor rugs and wall hangings—are by some of the best artists on the Navajo Nation. The weavings represent all of the major weaving areas on the Navajo reservation including Two Grey Hills, Ganado, Teec Nos Pos, Shiprock, and others. Values range from several hundred dollars to $20,000, allowing new and seasoned collectors the opportunity to start and add to their collections. In addition, if there is a need for specific styles or sizes of Navajo weaving, the team at Sorrel Sky will be happy to use the resources of Toh-Atin Gallery to locate the perfect piece.
Shanan Campbell, owner of Sorrel Sky Gallery, talked about this collaboration as being a natural progression of a friendship that has spanned decades. “My family and I have known Jackson and worked with him for years. This idea to feature Navajo weaving from his Durango gallery in my Santa Fe gallery felt right from our first conversation. We’re excited to see how the next several weeks go. Perhaps we’ll extend this partnership or feature it at times throughout the year.”
