A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

Charles King is approaching his 25th year as a leading gallerist in Scottsdale, specializing in the highest quality and most innovative pueblo pottery. King Galleries represents many of today’s leading potters and Charles is known for his in-depth knowledge of the thought process and motivation behind every piece in the gallery. His most recent book, Spoken Through Clay, is already considered a must-have resource. Fortunately for us, Charles opened a sister gallery here in Santa Fe several years ago. As we approach the major art market season, Charles will give us a sneak peek of new trends, upcoming exhibits, and what to expect from both the familiar masters and the emerging new artists. And there may even be an opportunity to meet and mingle with some surprise guest artists!
