In Sedona, Arizona Turquoise Tortoise Gallery is happy to welcome back the celebrated Contemporary Native American artist Tony Abeyta who unveils his latest NEW WORKS.

A recipient of the New Mexico Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and named a Living Treasure by Santa Fe’s Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, Abeyta was already known for his specially commissioned paintings used as the signature images for the groundbreaking and also the grand opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.

Tony Abeyta embraces his Native American heritage but does so on a world stage: He has lived, studied and painted in Baltimore, Chicago, New York, Italy and France, enriching himself with advanced arts degrees and an expansive worldview that allows him to meet the challenges of the Euro-American art market while retaining roots in his own heritage. “[Art] is about making a contribution to culture, about being part of the creative dialogue,” Tony Abeyta says. With evolving interpretations of Navajo deities, neo-modernist landscapes and massive charcoal explorations in nearly black-and-white palettes, Abeyta strikes a skillful balance between representation and abstraction.

"Flower Blossoms" by Tony Abeyta,
44"h x 52"w,  oil on canvas. At Turquoise Tortoise Gallery in Sedona, AZ.

Stop by Turquoise Tortoise Gallery on 1st Friday evening to meet Tony Abeyta and enjoy the rare opportunity to hear him speak about his paintings’ subjects, his techniques and creative process, and his new directions.
