The poster here is signed, although faded, on each side by RC & Fritz Scholder, although Mr. Scholder was actually taller than RC, Mr. Gorman for this photo shoot thought to wear boots and his 10 gallon hat making himself seem tallest of the 2. After this exhibit in 1973 these two fine Native American artists careers were in full swing. At this point Mr. Scholder was teaching at the Santa Fe Institute of American Indian Arts. He had lived here in Taos nearby to the san Francisco de Asis Church Plaza on the Talpa ridge, his home 300 years ago was part of the lookout station for the Ranchos Plaza. Sorry but the above poster is NFS, a jewel in my personal collection. So far, so good, many of the smaller pieces from the Gorman collection are being snatched up, most of which have not been posted here. I do have 8 beveled mirrors with RCG inscribed at the top available for $19.99, a really nice inexpensive memento, or a great gift, ooh.
1760 Umbrellas California project 1991 in Gorman, California! The above Christo photograph signed: "Dear R.C. Finally Two Great Artists meet! Christo" This too is NFS
Pottery Bowl with Long Beard Kachinas and woven handle w/coral beads 4"tall signed by Ottellie Loloma (Hopi 1922-1993) who began teaching at the Institute of American Indian Arts in 1962, married to Charles Loloma who was best known for his innovative contemporary style jewelry and who occasionally collaborated on pottery with his wife. $2,500.
Since you already know I'm a Kachina nut, this one made me gasp "Two Horn Society w/Rainbow" (or is it some sort of Social Dancer perhaps a Moth?) As I can not find anything at all in the books we'll just say it's extremely rare and price it at $1,500. which I believe is very fair, size is 14" tall, perfect balance to stand probably ca. 1970's A TRUE collector's item. A collector recently emailed to say who he believes this doll may have been carved by, a bit more investigating needs to be done. This doll has been repaired and I now know it to be the Deity Asoaka which is not a true Kachina, it is in the category with Masau.
