CHRISTMAS OPEN EVENING

Friday 2nd December 6pm – 8pm

Kick start the festive season with the traders of Coldharbour Road next Friday 2nd December. Join us for an evening of community spirit, Christmas shopping and festive fun. This year Rainmaker Gallery and neighbours welcome you with seasonal treats, warming drinks and lots of gorgeous things to see and buy. To round the evening off in fine style wander over to The Cambridge Arms at 8pm for joyous carol singing with a local choir.

You can find lots of glamorous new jewellery and enchanting Zuni fetish carvings here on the website. More new items are being added to the website daily and our Christmas stock of Pendleton blankets will be here by the end of this month.

Now is the time to treat yourselves and your loved ones to a gift that is beautiful, lasts a life time and will keep you cozy through the coldest winter nights. A word to the wise – Pendleton blankets are still currently available at pre-brexit prices despite the dramatic dive in the £-$ exchange rate. Unfortunately, next year prices will have to go up, so don’t delay.

Next week is also the last chance to experience our magical autumn exhibition LOMAHAFTEWA – Looking For Beauty In The Future. The exhibition ends next Wednesday 30th November – highly recommended!

 


 

'Dance of the Continuum' by Dan V Lomahaftewa.

LOOKING FOR BEAUTY IN THE FUTURE

18th October – 30th November 2016

As Rainmaker Gallery celebrates 25 years of exhibiting Native American art in England, we look back to the work of our very first visiting artist, the late Dan Viets Lomahaftewa (1951-2005).

Dan Lomahaftewa created distinctly spiritual works of art that resonate vividly across deep time. He sought to communicate the strong continuum that connects ancient ancestors to the peoples of today, to future generations and beyond. The title of this exhibtion, Looking for Beauty in the Future, is a translation of Lomahaftewa, the artist’s Hopi family name.

Artwork in this exhibition includes paintings, monotypes, etchings and collagraphs and is the last remaining inventory offered for sale by the artist’s family.

HOT OFF THE TRAIL!

We recently returned to Indian Country in search of yet more amazing art and beautiful unique jewellery, and also to plan future Rainmaker Gallery exhibitions for the coming years.

Especially for the Zuni fetish collectors amongst you, we found some cool old style carvings by the delightfully named Jimmy Yawakia (Jimmy Falls-in -love!) and exquisitely detailed masterpieces by young Destry Sintza.

Direct from Hopi we tracked down Kevin Honyouti with his traditional clay painted Kachina dolls and esteemed elder Anthony Honahnie, whose super smart sterling silver overlay jewellery is perfect for men as well as women.

Also in the jewellery department we welcome three brand new names from the Apache and Navajo Nations, alongside our established favourites from the Pueblo tribes of Northern New Mexico.

Art wise there are more gems from bestselling Comanche painter Nocona Burgess and exciting new works from some young emerging artists.

If you want to know what’s new in, don’t wait for the photos to appear on the website – come to the gallery now and see what we brought back!
