September 2020 Featured Navajo Rugs: Teec and Three Turkey

Monday, August 31st, 2020

September 2020

2 Featured Navajo Rugs.

Long hot summer in California

Although none of them are closer than 50 miles from Hanford, the recent lightning caused fires throughout California literally surround us. It’s been extremely smoky and the sky is yellow except at sunset when it is deep red like the landscape of the Navajo Nation. Coupled with 100+ temperatures, it’s tough for firefighters and residents. We will get through this. And the pandemic. And the weakened economy. And whatever else comes our way.

Sandpainting Rug Update

The sandpainting rug we recently featured in Native American Arts magazine has been sold. If you had your eye on it, take a look at three other Sandpainting rugs we offer. These rare patterns can add variety to your collection of Navajo weaving styles.

#1134 is a great old Red Mesa 3rd phase Chief’s blanket. It’s 65″ x 55″ and circa 1910. Yes. It’s over a hundred years old.

Featured Navajo Rugs May 2020 Sandpainting and Moki

May 2020

2 Featured Navajo Rugs.

We hope you are doing well and adapting to this ever changing situation.

Like the rest of the country, we are staying close to home and being very cautious about our interactions. Our relatively small rural farming community in central California has had very few Covid 19 cases and we are hopeful that the situation won’t get out of control so that this pandemic will be nothing more than a short chapter in our lives.

In the meantime, we are busy preparing for our upcoming exhibit at the Kings Art Center here in Hanford. At least two dozen weavings representing the various Navajo patterns and colors will be on display from August 21 until September 26. Preparation includes working with the center’s curator to select the pieces and writing informative pieces about the history of Navajo weavings; their use and symbolism.

Keep your eyes open for your personal invitation in early summer.

No rugs were added this month. The featured rugs are two. One especially high quality and rare piece.

# 1115 is a large Sandpainting from the Nightway Ceremony circa 1920, 71″ x 67″. It is an outstanding blanket. Discounted to $17900 for the month of May.

March arrived “like a lamb and may go out like a lion.” The month started pretty dry and we are excited to experience rain every few days since mid-month.

Long before we ever heard the term Coronavirus, Red Mesa Gallery’s Jeff Voracek and I were working on bringing you three outstanding Sandpainting weavings. These rare and beautiful pieces are exceptional works of art steeped in Navajo spiritual beliefs.

# 1129J Sandpainting Mountainway Navajo Weaving. People of the Myth or Mountain Gods. This is, by far, the nicest Sandpainting weaving I have ever offered. It is very large at 107″ X 78″. Circa 1920.

Outstanding Sandpainting Navajo Rug for Sale March 2020

Saturday, February 29th, 2020

Phil was right; we are having an early spring, in California at least. Almond trees are full of white flowers and the pink stone fruit trees are not far behind. I don’t know how that groundhog in Pennsylvania does it.

As for me, I’ve been adding to the collections and am offering you some amazing weavings this season.

We added two outstanding blankets. The first is the best Sandpainting Blanket I have ever offered.

# 1115 is a large Sandpainting from the Nightway Ceremony. It is circa 1920 and is 71″ x 67″. With a lot of detail and action, it is a great weaving in a size perfect for a living room or office.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020!

We’re starting off the new decade with a bang of fabulous additions and discounts on several pieces.
The first addition is the finest weaving I have ever offered.

# 1117 is a Hubble Germantown Moki blanket circa 1880s. It is 57″ x 79″.  Usually the Moki design alternates blue and black bands, but on this one, the bands are a very dark and rich purple instead of blue. The colors jump out at you, and the weaving is so tight, that it will shed water. This is an outstanding weaving.
