Shiprock Santa Fe gallery, located on the historic Santa Fe Plaza, is rooted in the rich artistry, cultures and traditions of the Navajo and other Native American tribes of the Southwest. Taking inspiration from the Navajo legend of Shiprock, a sacred volcanic rock formation believed to have once been a great-winged bird that carried the Navajo peoples to northwestern New Mexico, the gallery spans place and time—merging historic and contemporary Native American art with modern mid-century furnishings in an eclectic gallery aesthetic.
For more than 20 years, fifth-generation art dealer Jed Foutz, who was raised on the Navajo Nation in a prominent family of Indian art traders, has refined his singular vision into Shiprock Santa Fe's specialty collection of historic and contemporary textiles, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, basketry, folk art and fine art by leading Native American artists.
Collectible furniture by such iconic designers as Charles and Ray Eames, George and Mira Nakashima adds an unexpectedly modern touch to Shiprock's classic Native American selection, while exhibitions by noted modern-day artists keep the gallery on the cutting edge of art and design.
