NEW!  GBNA show /  Indigenous Voices of the Great Basin

The new Stewart Indian School Cultural Center and Museum (SISCCM) opened its’ doors in January 2020 and have invited the Great Basin Native Artists to turn a space in the Museum into our own gallery- the Wa-Pai-Shone Gallery!  We are extremely excited to finally have our own space and will be continuing our regular exhibition schedule in this gallery.  


The first exhibit will be an extension of the recent show we had at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport called Indigenous Voices of the Great BasinContemporary Indigenous Artwork from Members of the Great Basin Native Artists.  Works from this exhibition will be on view throughout the year until October 2020.

July 28, 2018:  I had the pleasure of taking a Black Ash basket class with Kelly Church. She is amaznig! My daugther joined in on the fun too. 

Just getting started!
My foundation.
Detail work.
Two very happy basket makers!

In September of 2015, I had the opportunity to take an AMAZING Paiute/Miwok Basketry class in Yosemite through the Yosemite Conservancy from Lucy Parker, her mother Juia Parker, and her daughter Ursula. It was an honor to begin learning a traditional art form.

Classtime on our second day. My hands are not co-operating at this point.

Working the edge out.

Last glimpse of Yosemite headed home.

The class was a true learning experience. I am incredibly lucky to have been able to take it from this amazing family.  I met some great friends. I was humbled by great teachers as well. I have many years of learning to go. Materials have already been gathered (Thanks Peggy and Clay) to start some baskets in the Spring.
