WHAT''S NEW

IN THE COMING MONTHS, the Yosemite Native American Art Gallery will feature the biographies and works of several contemporary Native American artists. The biographies/autobiographies presented will detail life stories with special emphasis on the artist's feeling about their work and the philosophy of being a contemporary artist.

Among the artists to be profiled: Yosemite-area basket weaver Julia Parker. Our Sisochi Gallery currently has several examples of her baskets. Ms. Parker is an internationally renown artist whose works are avidly sought by basket collectors everywhere.

The Gallery has also agreed to represent the works of Tony Bearhorse, an artist who paints colorful scenes of Lakota tribal history on deer and elk hides. Tony is anxious to present his concerns as an artist. We encourage those interested in the immensely popular and collectible art of Tony Bearhorse to contact us as soon as possible for further details on this important addition to the Sisochi Gallery.

The Gallery has also commissioned a Kachina series from Donald Howard, a young Hopi artist. We are especially excited to represent Mr. Howard. It's a rare opportunity to encourage such a young and talented carver. Each of his Cottonwood Kachinas is highly detailed and vibrant. Unlike many other Kachina artists who have added leather and fabric to their pieces, Donald Howard's works are carved entirely of wood and stained with rare natural dyes.

We encourage you to keep an eye on our rapidly expanding web site and we urge visitors to the Yosemite area to visit our physical site: the Sisochi Gallery. We have constantly strived to present authentic organic art--this in the face of the growing trend of overly-stylized production pieces. Additionally, with hundreds of books, the Gallery is an important resource for those interested in Native American history. The art profiled on our internet site represents but a fraction of our available stock and we welcome the opportunity to show you our entire collection.
