The Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA) is pleased to announce that Nina Sanders (Apsáalooke) will be the guest editor of both the official Santa Fe Indian Market Magazine, produced by Native American Art Magazine, and the Live & Virtual Artist Booth Guide published by Hutton Broadcasting. Sanders will commission Indigenous writers and artists under the age of 40 to write each publication’s feature articles. Her vision extends to educating and inspiring a new generation of collectors of Native American art.
“My goals are in line with SWAIA‘s: to reclaim and indigenize the narrative around Native art and culture in the U.S. and Canada. I am not looking to be exclusionary, rather, to seize this moment in history and try something new. I intend for the contributions of the guest writers, who are scholars, curators, art historians and artists, to provide a guidepost for a new generation of collectors and Native American art writers,” says Sanders.
Since 2017, Native American Art Magazine has produced the official Indian Market Magazine, profiling artists and market highlights—providing collectors with an invaluable resource for collecting contemporary and traditional Native American Art.
“Native American Art Magazine brings the Artist and Collector together. What a more fitting partnership than Santa Fe Indian Market and Native American Art Magazine working together to bring Native art to every part of your life,” says International Art co-publisher Wendie Martin.
In addition to the official magazine, Hutton Broadcasting will publish a newly conceived Live & Virtual Artist Booth Guide. The 2021 Live & Virtual Artist Booth Guide will allow collectors to get to know the market artists and curate their market experience.
“Our partnership with SWAIA will begin with publication of the artist guide— but will evolve into a multimedia relationship that grows their international brand through our expertise in publishing, video creation and digital media,” said Scott Hutton.
