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 two new local artists to the gallery during March art walk. Jerome sculptor and painter Richard Faye joins the gallery with his sculptural abstractions of the human figure. Richard has previously studied and created art in Atlanta, Taos and Sedona before ultimately moving to Jerome and becoming a member of the local artist’s community. Richard’s sculptures are hand carved wood and colorfully painted resulting in highly creative, fanciful works of art.
