Selected to be Artist in residence at Hubbell Trading Post in Arizona during summer 2022
|The stone hogan|
Exciting news! I have been selected to be the artist in residence at Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site in northeastern Arizona for a few weeks this summer. My residency project will include weaving on an oversized hanging loom suspended from a tree limb. (I think it'll be a limb in the tree next to the hogan in the photo....) I'll also be making some smaller weavings on a rigid heddle loom. A second rigid heddle loom will host a "group weave" for guests who stop by to check out the progress on the oversized loom project. I will also keep a journal of my experiences and reflections.
I will stay at the historic stone hogan on the trading post grounds.
Hubbell Trading Post is owned by the National Park Service. It is located at Ganado, Ariz., on the Navajo reservation. The trading post has been in operation since 1878, when it was acquired by John Hubbell who, with his family, oversaw the trading of Navajo art and craft goods for more than 80 years. Trading activities continue today under the oversight and management of the Western National Parks Association. For more information about Hubbell Trading Post
