Gallup Native Arts Market

Saturday, August 11, 2018

The Gallup Native Arts Market is entering its second year in downtown Gallup. The market originated when a group of Native American artists approached the City of Gallup about “reclaiming Gallup’s assets” and providing an opportunity for highly skilled artists from the region to showcase at home and make an economic impact in their “backyards”. The City Council in Gallup had actually voted years ago on its strategic plan to support Native Art Market efforts in Gallup, so the timing was perfect. The market is run by a committee of Native American artists who have recently formed the Gallup Native Arts Market 501c3, and the event is financially supported by the City of Gallup Lodgers Tax. This year the City of Gallup is proud to partner with the Keshi Foundation to expand and grow the Zuni Pueblo arts presence in the heart of Gallup, New Mexico. There are a total of 169 artists participating in this year's market.
