Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Seven Directions Tours announces a new weekend-long immersion in Native American culture, art, and cuisine scheduled for August 11 and 12, 2012.
The 34th Antique Indian Art Show opens its door on Sunday 12th in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Among the biggest in the country, the show features antique artifacts ranging from masks to pottery, textiles, baskets, and jewelry. To complement the experience private visits to top-notch galleries Santa Fe is famous for offer an insight into the creative skills of North America’s tribal art world. Participants will enjoy the opportunity to meet artists who continue in the tradition of their ancestors and understand the changes in media and styles leading to today’s contemporary Native art.
Two important museums of Santa Fe will enhance the appreciation of these unique art forms with their exquisite permanent collections and exhibitions.
For a more profound understanding of the deeply rooted beliefs that inspire Native art forms and designs short expeditions in the villages surrounding Santa Fe will bring alive the artifacts found during the journey. At one of these villages, Santa Clara Pueblo, the opportunity to watch their ceremonial dances and eat at a private home will definitely round-out this exceptional weekend.
Since food is undoubtedly an important element of any culture, Saturday evening there will be a private dinner at a Native chef’s home where participants will receive a lecture on the Native cuisine of the Southwest and then experience a variety of dishes featuring ancient ingredients with a modern twist.
Seven Directions Tours has selected a Native-owned hotel to spend the two nights included in this weekend getaway where the décor is typical Southwestern with important Native American art all around.
The renowned Santa Fe high season will be in full flow to add excitement to this very unique opportunity of an out of the ordinary experience.
