Shop California Indian craft at the annual Indian Market at OMCA

By OMCA Staff

Find contemporary and traditional works by 20 local artisans at the third annual Indian Market at OMCA. Held November 4 from 3 to 9 pm and November 5 from 10 am to 4 pm, the event—created in partnership with News From Native California—highlights jewelry, basketry, and other items.
 
Keeping With Tradition

“The Market is a celebration of California Indian indigenous craft that will feature work of people from all over the state,” says Michael Silverman, associate director of retail and product development at OMCA. One of those artists is Paul Stone, who creates striking pencil drawings, sculptures, and wood burnings, in addition to playing the flute. He is a self-taught artist who was born and raised on the Bishop Paiute Reservation in Bishop, California. A Paiute and Washoe, Stone cites his heritage and family traditions—his grandfather, Raymond Stone, was a noted sculptor and medicine man—as major influences on his art and music.
