  • Native Treasures: Indian Arts Festival announces the artists, many of them related, whom will be participating in the festival this year. The current roster includes top painters, jewelers, potters, glass artists, sculptors, carvers and weavers who will showcase their work May 24–25 at the Santa Fe Convention Center.
    The festival benefits the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe.
    Jeweler, Victoria Adams, and her sister, Alexis Adams (both Southern Cheyenne/Arapaho), will make their first appearance at Native Treasures this year.
    Victoria Adams is well known for her detailed and refined jewelry designs. She recently branched out into handmade purses with sterling silver and gemstone decorations.
    Alexis Adams is a potter whose designs are influenced by the forms of her Cheyenne ancestors and the plants native to her home in the Sierra foothills of California. The result is a pottery style reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts movement.
    Mother and daughter, Mona and Charlene Laughing, (both Diné), are master weavers who regularly win first-place ribbons for their striking and colorful work at the Santa Fe Indian Market and the Heard show in Phoenix. They have participated in Native Treasures for the last several years.

  • The Irishman who helped Charles L. Tiffany and others seek turquoise in territorial New Mexico left a treasure trove of letters… this is his story.
    For the first time, discover the adventure in the search for turquoise outside of Cerrillos on the Turquoise Hill.
    “Tiffany Blue” is the true story of territorial New Mexico told through the extensive documents of the immigrant Irishman who was the superintendent of the once biggest and best turquoise mine in all of America.
    Author Patricia McCraw discusses the novel, 7:30 p.m. April 15 at Fuller Lodge.
    The public is welcome to learn about parts played by Indians, outlaws, governors, sheriffs, adventurers, bandits, the New Mexico Insane Asylum, politicians — both good and bad — and an assortment of schemers and dreamers all seeking a piece of the American Turquoise Company. And the backers of the American Turquoise Co. were titans: Charles Lewis Tiffany, the New York jeweler, James Stillman, president of First National City Bank of New York and one of America’s richest men and Allan Pinkerton of the detective agency.
