The Contemporary Native American Art auction, offered by Hindman, is anchored by several works of metal and turquoise. One such piece is a squash blossom necklace with matching earrings by Navajo silversmith Darren Livingston. He began learning his trade from his father, Paul Livingston, at the age of 13 and developed a strong interest in Navajo-style jewelry with metals and traditional stones. Both Livingston’s contemporary designs and his vintage-looking works are now in high demand.
Also in the sale is a sculpture titled Earth Mother by artist and educator Allan Houser. Though well-known and respected as an artist throughout his career as a teacher, Houser was most active after his retirement in 1975. This piece is from that later period. Houser’s work has been shown at the United Nations, the National Portrait Gallery, and the Smithsonian Institution. Further pieces in the sale include redware seed jars by Joseph Lonewolf, weaving works by Carolyn Segay, fine art prints by Fritz Scholder, and more.
