The organizers of Native Treasures: Indian Arts Festival are pleased to announce the 2013 recipient of the Native Treasures Living Treasure award: noted potter and sculptor Tammy Garcia, from Santa Clara Pueblo.
There will be a benefit ceremony honoring Garcia, 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Santa Fe Convention Center.
The Native Treasures Living Treasure Award acknowledges both the body of work by an artist and the participation of that artist in the community at large.
Garcia is renowned for her innovation, design and execution across a variety of media. She is an artistic mentor to younger artists and in 2012 funded the Tammy Garcia Award for Excellence at SWAIA’s Indian Market.
“We are thrilled to have Tammy as our 2013 Museum of Indian Arts and Culture Living Treasure,” Jane Buchsbaum said. “She is truly a gifted artist whose work incorporates traditional designs and modern iconography. Her forays into other media, such as bronze and glass, have been groundbreaking, while her pottery is always exceptional.” Buchsbaum is artist chairman for Native Treasures
Garcia is represented locally by Blue Rain Gallery, which carries her work in all media.
