A Time of Change: Navajo Transitional weavings 1885-1910
Tucson Gallery
April 26th through June 30, 2018
Transitional weavings, circa 1885-1910, represent an under appreciated class of Navajo textiles often overlooked as being made during a lesser time of Navajo weaving production. What has not been recognized until recently is the incredible artistic exploration that occurred during this time period forced by economic pressures on Navajo weavers to stop making blankets to wear and shift producing to making rugs for the floor. A TIME OF CHANGE explores this snippet in history which allowed weavers greater freedom to explore new artistic expression in compositions and colors never imagine. 40 unique examples of these transitional textiles will be on display and for sale through June 2018 at Tucson’s Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery. Show ends June 30, 2018.

Summary: In the sixth book in the Charles Bloom Murder Mystery series... In 1961, two Navajo boys must bet each other’s lives—and risk their most prized possessions—to escape the wrath of the sadistic headmaster of a Gallup Indian boarding school. The white devil and his spawn will stop at nothing—not even murder—to acquire the objects of their desire. Fifty years later, a brush with death draws Rachael Yellowhorse and Charles Bloom back to the Navajo reservation, where they unwittingly stumble on a decades-old secret of child abuse and stolen heirlooms. Charles and Rachael must pick the awful lock of truth before deadly traps for the Navajo boys—now grown men—are sprung. The extended Bloom family also is in peril as the circle of life closes in on all those involved, and the white crosses in the graveyard of Two Trees Indian School yearn for justice.
