David Dawangyumptewa

 Zen Mountain Gallery is pleased to now represent noted Hopi artist David Dawangyumptewa. His work has been recognized with awards from the Museum of Northern Arizona, American Indian Heritage Foundation and Santa Fe and Colorado Indian Markets. David Dawangyumptewa has been represented by galleries in Arizona, California and Texas and has just ended an exhibition at the Museum of Northern Arizona on May 25, 2015; this impressive body of work is now becoming available at Zen Mountain Gallery. The style and content of Dawangyumptewa’s work are reflective of his Hopi Background and Water Clan affiliation. His works are abstracted variations of traditional water symbols, frogs, dragonflies and turtles. David was raised on the Hopi and Navajo Nations and has studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts, Haskell Institute in Kansas and Northern Arizona University. His early career included stints as a lighting roadie for Jackson Brown and Linda Ronstadt. David has been a very significant arts advocate lobbying to bring greater access for First Nations Peoples of Canada to U.S. markets. He has been instrumental in numerous museum, Native American Arts Market, and local Arts projects including the founding of the Flagstaff Festival of Arts. David Dawangyumptewa’s colorful mixed media work is simultaneously grounded in tradition and achieves expressive contemporary abstraction. His work reflects the commitment of Zen Mountain Gallery to provide the finest local contemporary and contemplative fine art.

Zen Mountain Gallery welcomes Fine art ceramicist Luna Patterson as featured artist for January Art Walk. Luna Patterson is known for the beauty of her hand built forms and remarkable color achieved through pit firing. Her colors are suggestive of the Arizona desert and local red rocks. Originally from Denmark, Luna has lived in Arizona since 1992. She has studied pottery at the college level, but is largely self-taught and takes an explorative and experimental approach to her art and is now teaching pit fire techniques. She has won numerous awards for her work including first and third place in the 2008 and 2009 Arizona Clay Olympics. Luna’s work epitomizes Zen Mountain Gallery’s emphasis on contemporary and contemplative fine art, while maintaining a beautiful organic simplicity.
