Southwest Basketry & More | Trunk Show, Presentation & Sale with Terry DeWald

Presentation at 12 pm

Free with Admission

Join us on Wednesday, April 17th and Thursday, April 18th for a special Trunk Show and presentation with Terry DeWald. Mr. DeWald is an expert in the field of American Indian art. A comprehensive overview of historic and contemporary basketry from Arizona, the Southwest region, the Great Basin, and extending to Northwest and Alaskan indigenous basketry will be on display.  Numerous examples of all types will be for sale ranging in price, and ranging in date from the late 1800s to contemporary pieces created in 2024.  Learn about their materials, warps, wefts, designs, techniques, and functionality, all of which played a huge part of the lives of the Native makers and their families – from their survival to their metaphysics. Considered the oldest craft of all, Native American Basketry has declined drastically in numbers.

Enjoy a rewarding experience to learn and familiarize yourself with an endemic art that is an important part of Native Culture, and Tucson Culture; with many examples of current Tohono O’odham baskets still being produced today.  You can also see examples of Pima, Apache, Hopi, Yavapai, Havasupai, Navajo, Pomo, Yurok, Pitt River, Chemehuevi, Panamint, Shoshone, Yokut, Mission, Hupa, Eskimo, Tlingit, Skokomish, Maidu, Nootka, and Washoe basketry. All sales benefit Tohono Chul.
