29th Annual Invitational Antique Indian Art Show – August 13-15, 2007
Whitehawk’s original show celebrates its 28th year and features antique Indian art objects ranging from Northwest Coast masks to Southwestern pottery, jewelry, textiles, California baskets, Plains beadwork of all types and artifacts from the Western, Great Lakes and Woodland tribes. This is the largest and longest running show for historic antique Indian Art. Don’t miss the gala preview opening on Monday, August 13th, 6-9pm, where you will have a chance to enjoy great food & wine while being the first to view the amazing selection of antique Indian art. The show continues with general admission on Tuesday & Wednesday from 10am –5pm.
In reality, Whitehawk Associates’ “week” of antique
shows is so big it takes ten days. For twenty-six years, these pre-eminent
promoters of antique Native American art shows have produced the largest and
oldest show of this type in the country. Set up with gallery like booths, the
show is a stylish affair attended annually by anyone looking to purchase
museum-quality Indian artifacts. Dealers from around the country wait for this
show, holding their finest selections acquired throughout the year. This year’s
Invitational Antique Indian Art Show is August 10-15.
Although it is considered a specialty show, the Antique Ethnographic Art Show, August 10-12, is far broader in scope than Whitehawk’s other two shows. Considered one of the best and most eclectic shows in the country for ethnic material, the scope is worldly, just as it should be. Latin material is, of course, a big draw in this southwestern art capital. From Mexico to Panama to Chile, material from every country south of the border is sure to be seen. The Santa Fe Ethno show has tribal material which spans the globe east to west from New Guinea to Nepal to Nigeria. North to south, treasures can be seen from Tunisia to Togo to Tanzania. Big to bitty, from an antique bead to a Chinese bed, the possible finds are too numerous to mention. Of course, as we all know, half the pleasure is in the hunt !
The newest and possibly most exciting event this Santa Fe season may be Whitehawk’s addition of an antique western fine art show. The Fine Arts of the American West Antique Art Show, August 13-15, will feature western art at its best, be it Bohlin saddles or Taos Society paintings. Whereas art auctions have been a part of the Santa Fe art scene for years, an antique western art show bringing together the country’s leading dealers under one roof is a new and needed addition to the art world. Come and participate in this great new event on the New Mexico horizon. From spurs to master painters, this is the show that captures the spirit of the Old West.
All three shows begin with an evening preview. Savor a festive dinner buffet as you sip wine and view all that will be offered for sale during the following two show days of each event. More information can be found at www.WhitehawkShows.com or by calling (505)992-8929.
