Jed Foutz:Shiprock Trading Days

Jed Foutz

Jed Foutz began selling art at the age of six. Raised on a Navajo reservation, the fifth-generation art dealer spent many days at the trading post with his father, buying and selling handmade goods. Decades later, Foutz, now the owner of Shiprock Santa Fe gallery, says his deep-rooted love for collecting Native American art and textiles is still ablaze. “To be honest,” he says, “I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do.”

Bylaw Amendments

The Guild Board of Directors has approved the following proposed amendments to the Heard Museum Guild Bylaws.  These amendments will be voted upon at the Guild meeting on September 19, 2018.

Amendment One

Amend Article IX, Section 1, to replace the words, “Community Programs Coordinator” with the words “Student Art Coordinator.”

Amendment Two

Amend Article VII, Section 3, to read, “The Annual Meeting shall be held at a date to be determined by the President for the primary purpose of installing newly-elected officers,“  and

Article VIII, Section 2, to delete the words, “in May,” and

Article X, Section 3, to delete Paragraph 6.

Rationale for Amendment One

The Bylaws should reflect the reality that the activities under the Community Programs Coordinator are all and only related to the Student Art programs of the Guild.

Rationale for Amendment Two

The Bylaws should not be specific regarding which month to hold the Annual Meeting of the Guild.  We need the option to hold the meeting in April or May.

Heard Guild Staff Appreciation Luncheon

The 17th annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon will take place on Friday, November 2 in Steele Auditorium from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm.  This is the Guild’s annual show of appreciation for Heard Museum Staff, all of whom support our success in so many ways, and vice versa.

Because last year’s focus on American Indian food from our own desert Southwest was such a hit – not to mention delicious! – we’re going to continue the “Three Sisters” theme again this year. Dianne Koble is chairing this year’s event, and she has recipes to share for such favorites as blue cornbread, Three Sisters Stew, Three Sisters Soup and Three Sisters Salad. The recipes are for your convenience, but don’t be constrained by them. Feel free to innovate with combinations of beans, corn and squash in any direction of your choosing.

If American Indian fare isn’t your strong suit, we encourage you to prepare a dish from whatever you consider to be your own culinary heritage. Or bring any other tasty dish of your choice.

Contact Dianne Koble at dkoble1@cox.net or 602 793-4665 to let her know what you have in mind (entrée, dessert, salad/side dish), so that she may prepare an appropriate label to identify your dish.

With or without food in hand, please come to the Luncheon to say hello to old friends and to meet new Staff members you may not know. Staff members tell us that their favorite form of appreciation (besides delicious food) is when Guild members take the time to get to know them and learn about their individual contributions to the Heard.

Fair Chair Volunteer Opportunities

Best of Show Award

We are delighted to announce that Howard R. & Joy M. Berlin and Kristine & Leland W. Peterson are sponsoring the Best of Show Award at $10,000. We were able to increase the Best of Show Award from $4,500 to $10,000 in 2018 because of the generous support of the Berlins and Petersons. The renewal of this gift enables the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market and its Juried Competition to continue attracting the best Native American artists and their creative and technically excellent art. Peterson is Treasurer of the Heard Museum Board of Trustees and Berlin is a Life Trustee of the Heard Museum. The Guild thanks the Berlins and Petersons for their generous support of the Indian Fair & Market and our outstanding artists.

Sponsor a Ribbon Today

Our goal for juried art competition awards is $63,800. By now, you should have received a request by mail to sponsor a ribbon. While IlgaAnn Bunjer has already secured commitments from a number of previous sponsors, we have a long way to go to reach our goal. Ribbons are available at the $1500, $500, $250 and $150 levels as well as Friend of the Fair donations of $1 to $149. Names of all donors will be listed in the Fair Guide (deadline Dec. 15) and Best of Show Program. Donations of any size are most appreciated.

All donations are awarded to artists.

Opportunities for Fair 2019

Hopi Arts, Hopi Culture May 10-13 2019

Picture in your mind soaring, tan mesas crowned by multi-storied adobe villages; listen to the wind rustling the dried leaves of blue and red and yellow corn that grows in traditional gardens scraped from the dry earth. Do the names Old Oraibi, Hotevilla, Shongopavi and Walpi conjure up images of dancing katsinam, pottery the color of the earth and overlaid silver with stark designs in black? Are you ready for a journey back in time to one of the oldest continuously inhabited settlements in the U.S.? Then join us this spring as we travel to the land of the Hopi where culture and tradition are rooted in the land.

All along the way we will enjoy the company of Southwest scholar and second-generation Indian art dealer Mark Bahti. With his lifelong connections, Mark will introduce us to silversmiths, potters, basket weavers and katsinam carvers working in both historical and contemporary ways who will share with us their art, their lives and their rich cultural heritage — jeweler, Weaver Selina and his wife, Alberta, maker of coiled baskets; glass artist, silversmith and poet, Ramson Lomatewama and his basket weaver (plaited) wife, Jessica; potter, Dolly Joe Navasie, known as White Swann; katsina-carver, Loren Honyouti; and, sand cast artist Gerald Lomaventema.

And, we’ve planned this departure over the Mother’s Day weekend to improve our chances of witnessing the very special celebrations that may be taking place in many of the villages. As with any cultural immersion experience, itineraries may change while unexpected and serendipitous opportunities arise.

Mother’s Day itself will end with dinner in the Turquoise Room at La Posada, the perfect ending to a perfect travel ed-venture.

The cost for this all-inclusive tour; transportation by motorcoach, accommodations, meals, guide services and all tour costs. Hosted by South of the Border Tours, is $1575 per person/double occupancy; $300 single supplement. Single availability limited.

Boarding School Film Series:

Encore Screening of “We Were Children“: Saturday, Oct. 13 11:30-1:30pm in Steele Auditorium

We Were Children

This film contains disturbing content and is recommended for audiences age 16 years or older. Parental discretion is strongly advised.

For over 130 years, more than 100,000 of Canada’s First Nations children were legally required to attend government-funded schools run by various Christian faiths. These children endured brutality, physical hardship, mental degradation, and the complete erasure of their culture. These schools were established with the express purpose, “To kill the Indian in the child.” Told through their own voices, We Were Children is the shocking true story of two such children: Glen Anaquod and Lyna Hart.

 


NEW EXHIBIT:

Sonwai: The Jewelry of Verma Nequatewa Opening October 5, 2018 On display through March 10, 2019


Sonwai — Verma Nequatewa (Hopi, b. 1949), Bracelet, 2000. Sugilite, opal, turquoise, coral, 18K gold. Collection of Quincalee Brown and James P. Simsarian


Verma Nequatewa (Hopi, b. 1949) began an apprenticeship with her uncle Charles Loloma around 1966. Nequatewa has signed her distinctive work with the Hopi feminine word for beauty, Sonwai, since 1989. It complements her uncle’s name, which was the masculine word with the same meaning.

Nequatewa worked with her uncle for more than twenty years. In that time she not only learned specific jewelry-making techniques but she also learned to distinguish quality stones and to develop a keen design sense. Today, she is recognized as one of the leading Native American lapidary artists. Although her jewelry has been featured in the U.S. and internationally, this will be the first comprehensive exhibition of her work. This exhibit continues the Heard’s emphasis on sharing with

our visitors the finest work in contemporary jewelry.

 


This First Friday we celebrate the opening of the new exhibition, Sonwai: The Jewelry of Verma Nequatewa.

Guest DJ Dana Armstrong who will play musical favorites of the artist for the evening.

Heard Museum presents rare works by Henri Matisse

Exclusively at the Heard Museum

Opening to the public on October 29, 2018, and running through January 2019, Yua: Henri Matisse and the Inner Arctic Spirit will explore the surprising and little-known story of how Inuit people and culture inspired one of the 20th century’s most influential artists, Henri Matisse. Included in the exhibition will be works by Matisse that have not been publicly shown in the United States, and will reunite dozens of stunning Yup’ik (Native Alaskan) mask sets that have been separated for more than a century.

Yua: Henri Matisse and the Inner Arctic Spirit will feature original artwork by Henri Matisse, Yup’ik masks, cultural objects, photographs, film, and ephemera, and will explore the shared creative impulses that transcend time and culture by examining the unexpected connection between the Great Master and the people of the Arctic.

What is Yua?
Yua is a Yup’ik word that represents the spiritual interconnectedness of all living things and is essential to maintaining balance and order in the Arctic way of life. It relates to popular notions of reincarnation. The Yup’ik are Native Alaskans, and their name translates to “the Real People.”

Verma and her husband Bob Rhodes gave me permission to tell the story of my amazing day at Hopi. And then the floor will be open for your stories.

The series reveals some of the most advanced cultures in human history and the Native American people who created it and whose legacy continues, unbroken, to this day.

The series explores this extraordinary world through an unprecedented combination of cutting edge science and traditional indigenous knowledge.
