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.
