Indian Market is Coming and the Shop is Ready!

The 53rd Annual Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market will be March 5-6 at the main museum location and the shop will be carrying all the wonderful work we normally do as well as hosting two guests. Denise Wallace will be back with her exquisite jewelry and Terry Dewald, basket expert, will be here with southwest, California and West Coast baskets.

Denise Wallace:

Denise Wallace (Aleut) was born in 1957 in Seattle, Washington. She and her husband Samuel made jewelry together from 1982 until his death in April of 2010. The Wallaces moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1977 so Dawn could attend the Institute of American Indian Arts. After she graduated in 1982, they opened a jewelry studio together where they made work based on the imagery and legends of Denise’s Aleut heritage.

Terry Dewald:

Terry Dewald is the author of "The Papago Indians and their Basketry", a member of the Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association and an expert in historic southwest and Californian basketry as well as contemporary Tohono O'odham and Apache basketry.

The Shop has a New Look and the Museum Has a New Bookstore

Last weekend was the grand opening of the Heard Museum Shop's Books and More book store. The book collection as well as the children's items have a new location across the courtyard with the museum's new Coffee Cantina, a coffee and light food shop that will remain open throughout the day for visitors who would like a snack and/ or a beverage rather than a sit-down meal at the cafe.  In addition, the Shop was re-designed to better display the beautiful artwork we have the pleasure of representing.
