This is the first year literacy as an art will be highlighted at this annual Native American exhibit. Event organizers plan to have Heyday Books of Berkeley on hand to discuss and sell many of the works published by Native Americans from the northern California region.
Traditional and contemporary Native American artists come together to showcase their art, share their stories, and educate visitors about the American Indian Art market and what it means to identify as “Native American” in today’s world. Enjoy discussions and presentations by exhibitors and wares for sale at vendor booths.
The Expo concludes with a concert by the Pomo Indian band “Black Horse Blues” in Coleman Hall.
This year, several new artists are exhibiting for the first time. Artists, basket makers, jewelry makers, poets, traditional dancers, crafters, and musicians are excited to share their art and their cultural knowledge and experience. This year collectors of Pomo baskets will also display some of their private collections and talk about what they take into consideration when choosing a piece for their collection.
The Expo is an opportunity to consider a fresh perspective that helps bridge the gap between cultural boundaries.
The “Black Horse Blues Band” is comprised of Pomo Indian men from Redwood Valley to Kashia and always delivers a rock ’n blues show to remember.
