Tempe, AZ The 2011 version of the Weaving in Beauty calendar has just been added to the Publications page in the Weaving in Beauty Mercantile. The calendar features Navajo weavers, weaving students, traders and trading posts and as many examples of the Navajo weaving art as possible. This year’s cover features 18 year old weaver Laramie Blake, a member of the famous Spider Rock Girls family of weavers. Also featured is work by Rena Robertson, Gilbert Begay, Nathan Harry, Verna Smith, Emily Malone, R.G. Sherman, Jennie Slick and Larissa Blake. In addition to the standard holidays, the calendar shows the official holidays of the Navajo Nation and the dates of major auctions and other important events in the cycle of the weaver’s year.
The calendar photographs are selected from the 8000+ pictures that I take each year and the editing job always reminds me that I am one of the luckiest people on the face of the earth to be doing what I do for a living. The calendar is priced at $15 per copy and you can click here to purchase a copy or click here to go to the Publications page in the Mercantile.
