The Gallup Native Arts Market is entering its second year in downtown Gallup. The market originated when a group of Native American artists approached the City of Gallup about “reclaiming Gallup’s assets” and providing an opportunity for highly skilled artists from the region to showcase at home and make an economic impact in their “backyards”.
The City Council in Gallup had actually voted years ago on its strategic plan to support Native Art Market efforts in Gallup, so the timing was perfect. The market is run by a committee of Native American artists who have recently formed the Gallup Native Arts Market 501c3, and the event is financially supported by the City of Gallup Lodgers Tax.
COME EXPERIENCE THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF NATIVE ART SOLD AND DEMONSTRATED BY THE ARTISTS THEMSELVES IN THE ENVIRONMENT THAT HAS INSPIRED AND FOSTERED TALENT IN THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES FOR GENERATIONS: HOME.
Admission to the market is free and open to the public.
The event is in two tents and additional outdoor booths at 215 W Aztec Avenue next to Courthouse Square in downtown Gallup.
