The Millicent Rogers Museum (Taos NM) has announced a special show and sale of Jicarilla Apache artists at the museum on May 16-18th. There will be a free opening reception on Friday, May 16th from 5-7 pm.
The Jicarilla Apache occupy the second largest Native American reservation in New Mexico. They are located in north central and western New Mexico around the town of Dulce. In the historic past, the Jicarilla would often come to Taos to trade with the Taos Pueblo Native Americans. The Millicent Rogers is bringing this tradition back by inviting different Jicarilla Apache artists to show, sell and talk about their traditional beadwork, pottery and basketry as well as fine art and contemporary jewelry during this weekend.
