We are getting ready to head for the Valley of the Sun for this weekend’s 8th Annual Pueblo Grande Museum Navajo Rug Auction. If you’ve been to one of our auctions, you know that there are always some standouts in the offerings and this weekend, we think that Bessie Yazzie’s 10’x12′ Storm Pattern masterpiece will be one of them. It is very unusual for a large contemporary rug like this come onto the market, much less come to an auction venue. The rug is very well woven, lies flat on the floor. We do have some other pictures of it and we take absentee bids, so please contact us if you are interested. We may have some other large rugs coming into the auction and we’ll also be glad to talk you about those.
The Spider Rock Girls, Emily Malone and her family will also be at the auction to demonstrate weaving and visit with you. If you’ve met the girls before, you’ll want to stop by and catch up with them. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting them and seeing their unique rugs, you’re in for a rare privilege. They’ll also have several rugs in the auction. Emily surprised us with a new design (pictured below held by her daugher Alyssa) two weeks ago in Flagstaff. That rug sold at the Flagstaff auction, but we’ll see what Emily has been up to since then!
Here are details on the time and location of the auction. We would love to see you Saturday!
