Durango, Colo. – Sorrel Sky Gallery features Navajo artist and designer, Artie Yellowhorse for two events in Downtown Durango. Beginning at 5 p.m. each night on Thursday, December 4 during the monthly First Thursday ArtWalk andFriday, December 5 at the annual holiday shopping extravaganza Noel Night, the public is encouraged to stroll in to the gallery, meet the artist and enjoy the holiday festivities throughout the evening.

Raised in Arizona, Yellowhorse is a third generation Navajo jewelry artist from the Towering House Clan specializing in fine handcrafted silver and stone jewelry. Her grandfather and father were both silversmiths and the women in her family were skilled weavers.
Growing up on the Navajo reservation, Artie was exposed to a variety of traditional Native American crafts. However, she chose to put her artistic instincts on hold and joined the United States Navy. Through her service to our country, she developed a love of travel which has influenced herselections of unique stones such as turquoise, lapis, malachite, amber and her exquisite silver work.
Gallery owner, Shanan Campbell Wells says “it is an honor to have Yellowhorse Family Designs represented at our gallery. Artie continues a family legacy and tradition of Navajo jewelry design.” Artie Yellowhorse’s creations are available at Sorrel Sky Gallery in Durango, CO.
