North American Indian Art:
North American Indians have used art as a form of expression for thousands of years, and with hundreds of tribes in existence, it is likely that most appraisers come across the art and decorative objects of North American Indians. The goal of North American Indian Art: Basic Identification and Valuation is for attendees to come away with a greater ability to distinguish Native American design from the look-alikes frequently found at market, identify regional characteristics and quality, and make a cogent argument to value in the current market. The program includes an extensive visit to the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) where Ted Trotta, dealer, scholar, and founding member of the New York Leadership Council for the NMAI will walk us through the Infinity of Nations exhibition to acquaint attendees to key tribal regions and their art and artifacts. Next, Lois Durbin, curator, author and member of the NMAI board, leads a tour and discussion of Glittering World: Navajo Jewelry of the Yazzie Family.
