Gallery Hózhó at Hotel Chaco invites you to the opening of Landings:  All About Place. The wide panoramas and vast skies inspired many artists, including Jacob Frye, Linda Lomahaftewa, David Naranjo, Margarita Paz-Pedro, and Alex Peña. As seen in landscape paintings, drawings, and prints, and in the literal use of the land to form ceramics, New Mexico has spurred creativity in many forms.

Bonus event:
To help celebrate the 100th anniversary of SWAIA’s annual Indian Market, Gallery Hózhó will host a pop-up gallery at Inn at Loretto in Santa Fe. Featuring work from our gallery, we invite you to join us in the Tesuque ballroom to see the beautiful paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, ceramics, and glass by New Mexican artists from Thursday, August 18, through Sunday, August 21, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
