contemporary Southwest Indian pottery and to meet the Indian artists who
create it at the Arizona State Museum's American Indian Pottery Fair on
Feb. 26 and 27. Over 100 outstanding Indian potters will be showing and
selling their art work at the Museum. The potters represent a broad range
of Southwest Indian groups including the Hopi, Navajo, Tohono O'odham,
and Pima tribes of Arizona and the New Mexico Pueblos of Zuni, Acoma,
Laguna, Jemez, Picuris, Taos, San Juan, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso,
Nambe, Cochiti, Santo Domingo and Isleta. Many of the potters are
internationally recognized artists and have won awards at major
competitive shows. An invitational event with a focus on pottery makes
this Fair unique among American Indian art fairs. Demonstrations of
