June 13, 2019
The Artist of the Year for the 2019 Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta is Ramona Sakiestewa. Ramona grew up in the American Southwest where the land and sky informed her artwork. For over 30 years she has written and lectured about Native American weaving and contemporary art including a USIA Lecture tour of Japan.
In addition to her own tapestry work, her studio has woven the works of other contemporary artists that includes Paul Brach, Frank Lloyd Wright and Kenneth Noland. Her own weavings reside in numerous corporate, private, and museum collections.
Recently she has changed media and is exploring constructed works-on-paper, print work and painting. She has shown her work nationally in numerous group and solo exhibitions.
