Native art > Indian Market attracts thousands of visitors each year

Santa Fe Indian Market is the ultimate venue for world-class Native art. On Saturday and Sunday, thousands of world-renowned Native American artists, visitors and collectors will come together to celebrate the 92nd annual Santa Fe Indian Market.


The Santa Fe Indian Market showcases works of art in all varieties of media, along with events and parties that allow collectors to get to know esteemed Native American artists.

The Santa Fe Indian Market, which draws more than 1,000 artists from more than 130 tribes from across the United States and Canada, showcases traditional and contemporary Native art of the highest caliber and quality. Indian Market Week™, a weeklong celebration of Native arts and culture that began Monday, will precede Indian Market weekend. With an abundance of fine art, famous artists and exciting events, the 2013 Santa Fe Indian Market will be the cultural and artistic event of a lifetime.

Indian Market offers collectors the unique opportunity to view and purchase stunning pieces of Native artwork in innovative forms of media. In addition, it provides an ideal venue for meeting and celebrating with the artists themselves.

The group of artists, which include Roxanne Swentzell, Virgil Ortiz, Jamie Okuma, Jeremy Frey and Jesse Monongya, is subject to strict regulations that ensure the authenticity and superiority of the work brought to the market. Each artist meets SWAIA’s standards — and brings pieces of the utmost aesthetic and cultural quality.

In addition to enriching their collections with new pieces of Native art, visitors can rub shoulders with the artists at various events and parties throughout Indian Market Week™.

Art aficionados should be sure to attend the Best of Show Ceremony and Luncheon on Friday to toast the lauded artists of this year’s market. The celebration will continue at the Live Auction Gala on Saturday, where guests will bid over fabulous works and enjoy a formal dinner with new and old friends. Collectors can develop lifelong relationships with the artists — relationships that will extend over many years and Indian Markets and even more works of world-class Native art.

The 2013 Native Cinema Showcase will be at the New Mexico History Museum featuring films by Native filmmakers.
