Sonwai & Ken Williams Jr.


Shiprock Santa Fe is pleased to announce its Annual Indian Market Exhibition: presenting the third of four collaborations between artists Verma Nequatewa/Sonwai (Hopi) and Ken Williams, Jr. (Arapaho/Seneca) on August 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. . Sonwai is a master jeweler who works primarily in 18 karat gold and gemstones. Using a variety of inlay and metal-working techniques, Sonwai creates elegant contemporary jewelry for private collectors and museums around the world. Ken Williams Jr. is primarily self-taught, born into a family of master beadworkers on his mother’s side. He studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) and developed an aesthetic that marries contemporary style with his traditional upbringing. Both artists will appear in person at the August 16th reception.

Shiprock Santa Fe Leads the Effort to Return Culturally Significant Reredos to Chimayo


May 9, 2018; Santa Fe, NM: Shiprock Santa Fe is pleased to announce a public reception and talk by cultural historian, Will Wroth, and an exhibition of important 19th Century Chimayo reredos (altar screens) on May 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery, located at 53 Old Santa Fe Trail. The 19th Century reredos originate from private chapels in Chimayo, New Mexico, and were recently discovered in the estate of artist, Harry Brorby (1927-2012) of Tucson, Arizona. Brorby acquired the altar screens decades ago and until recently, they have remained in his private collection. Jed and Samantha Foutz, owners of Shiprock Santa Fe, became aware of the Chimayo reredos when local Santa Fe art dealer Will Channing was enlisted by the Brorby Estate to find a buyer for the artifacts. The Foutzes embraced Channing’s conviction that the altar screens should be returned to New Mexico and agreed to exhibit the reredos at their gallery—allowing scholars and Spanish-Colonial Art enthusiasts to view the screens for the first time in over 40 years. The larger of the two wooden reredos measures 12 x 8 feet and is hand-painted with depictions of nine Catholic saints. The screen is thought to date back to 1850. The smaller screen, 8 x 6 1/2 feet, dated and signed 1865, features images of Saint Rita, Our Lady of Solitude, Jesus of Nazareth and other religious figures. In March, the Board of the Chimayo Museum voted in favor of receiving the reredos as a donation to the Museum. Chimayo Museum curator and historian Victor Dan Jaramillo said, "The return of either or both altar screens to Chimayo would be a happy event for the community and really fitting to have them back where they came from.” The Reredos of Chimayo are on display now at Shiprock Santa Fe through May 31, 2018
