  • 2018 American Indian Arts Exposition

    If you plan to be in Tucson, AZ during the 2018 Tucson Gem, Mineral, Fossil, Bead and Jewelry Show (January 19 through February 14), don’t miss the American Indian Arts Exposition (held January 28 through February 11). It’s one of the roughly 45 individual shows held each year as part of the Tucson Gem Show. What makes it so special is the opportunity to see the authentic arts and crafts practiced by Native Americans representing a time span of 10,000 years representing many nations in one spot! The Indian Arts Expo features 40 individual Native American artists selling baskets, blankets, pottery and Hopi kachinas and, of course, all kinds of jewelry. The featured artists will be demonstrating T/O basket making, the art of making custom jewelry, Hopi crafts, and beadwork. It’s being held at the Quality Inn Hotel, 1300 N. Stone Avenue, Tucson, AZ. Their artists and demonstrations change every 3 days so definitely plan to go more than once. Prices range from $5 and go up to several thousand so there is something for everyone.
