ARTIST VENDOR - Eli Thomas Arts

Native American Indian Art, Limited edition art prints , Gifts with Meaning . Holiday day gifts ! Native American Wisdom Keeper/Artist/Teacher. Sharing the Wisdom of the Ancestors and Respect for the Natural World. " Everything is connected and related , nothing stands alone Eli Thomas I express the knowledge of my culture ,the Onondaga Nation thru my artwork. The images form a panorama of earth, sky, fire and water. To experience my paintings is to discover the oral traditions and cultural symbols of the Onondaga Nation. Stories and symbols of my heritage blended with and connected with the natural world encourage and elevate the human spirit to embrace that which is positive in life. Felling appreciation, giving thanks, seeking peace, and showing respect for all living things are values innate in my visual representations. The prevalent image of the wolf is a personal symbol of my clan relationship. The wolf is a teacher, a four-legged brother, a relative worthy of respect. My artistic expression is attributed to the wisdom and example of my father. Grant Thomas. " I learned to observe and to be a good listener because of my father". I gathered information by listening to the stories and wisdom of the elders. I give thanks every day for that. My brother the wolf, is a teacher, I love sharing personal experiences and storytelling. I also teaches on all levels, from elementary school to the university. Good teaching inspires students to consider new concepts, it provokes their curiosity so they may venture beyond their familiar neighborhood into a larger more dynamic world." " Students of diverse backgrounds fix their eyes on Eli's art and travel the path of Haudenosaunee cultural experiences to find universal truths. In the process , they learn something of their own inner-beauty and open their eyes to the beauty and value of all living things." The students feel positive about themselves, others, and the world around them because Eli Thomas has shared his ideas with the stroke of his brush." I am grateful to Joanie my life partner.. I had been in severe emotional despair and near death with medical problems when we met.. and not able to do my art ... taking all just to keep alive and was not sure I even wanted to be... I have with her now still healing from allot of trauma , but with her support I am able to create again. New Eli Thomas Art stories on YouTube !

CRAFT VENDOR - Robert Stroup - Studio 44

CRAFT VENDOR - Robert Stroup - Studio 44

Robert Stroup was born and raised in the Sandhills of Nebraska, Even though Robert is not Native American, most of his life was spent among the Lakota people and has been greatly influenced by their art. In the 1960's and 70's he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art and Speech from the University of Nebraska and a Master's degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Dakota. Since then, he has worked in many creative environments with traditional and compentary two and three-dimensional Native Artists. His past work in a variety of mediums includes sculpture in wood, bronze, stone, clay, jewerly, and painting. The culture and history of the Lakota have facinated Robert since his youth was spent with his grandparents who farmed and ranced on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. The faces of the Lakota Elders he has known through his life are the major influence in his recent work in clay. Robert is presently building an experimental stray, grass and earth studio in the Badlands of South Dakota. This studio will house his recent works in primitive and raku fired clays.

CRAFT VENDOR - Shenandoah Deerskin Designz

Clothing/Needlework/Leatherwork - Jerry Schenandoah and his wife Cheryl are award winning artists who have been crafting deerskin clothing over the past 30 years. Their quality, authentic, and creative designs has lead them to be leaders in clothing the models and actors for various museum exhibits and films. Jerry is the son of the Oneida Wolf Clan mother Maisie Shenandoah, who taught her children the traditions and crafts of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) way. Jerry has been making a variety of crafts through his entire life. It wasn’t until his children were little that he saw there was a real need for quality leather outfits. He began making their clothing for dancing at pow wows, and begin to receive requests from other American Indians for their outfits. The effort blossomed into a full blown business when non-Indian people started putting in orders for themselves. Jerry and Cheryl have been one of the main designers for Grammy-nominated singer Joanne Shenandoah, who is Jerry's sister. Jerry and Cheryl created the leather sensations that Joanne and her family wore at the Grammy's in 2001, and which were highlighted on television. In 1998, the Mashantucket Pequot Indians approached Jerry and Cheryl about fashioning the entire clothing collection for the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center. In total, they attired 118 American Indian mannequins, the results of which have been lauded by both media and international curators alike. Shortly thereafter, in 1999, the Cherokees also requested that Jerry and Cheryl cloth the models in their exhibits, which they did. Most recently, the Discovery Channel hired this amazing team to cloth all the actors - men, women and children - in the film "the Great Peace." Again, Jerry and Cheryl did not disappoint, creating an astounding 65 outfits that the Haudenosaunee people likely wore 2,000 years ago. Jerry and Cheryl create clothing in nearly every style and for a variety of venues. Some of their more popular clothing include Indian wedding dresses/grooms clothing, eastern traditional wear, evening wear, plain leather jackets, beaded leather jackets, fur collar jackets, skirts and tops, children’s clothing, and moccasins. They also create any number of leathered products such as arrow quivers, couch and bed throws, and one-of-a kind purses. They also make other crafts, the most recent being traditionally-scented candles.
