Fine Art - Native American Paintings: Paintings

+Add category to My Preferences


The gallery carries both traditional and contemporary Native American Paintings. Traditional paintings are those influenced by Dorothy Dunn, founder of the art program and teacher at the Santa Fe Indian School in the 1930s. This style is used to give a visual narrative of daily experiences and special ceremonies. Contemporary paintings break away from traditional forms and styles, freeing artists to discover new and individualized techniques for interpreting their experiences and creative expressions.  In traditional pueblo art style, there are no background figures or ground plane.
