Spring Show and other Happenings

I’m pleased to tell you that IACA has two new Board Mem-

bers,

Suzie McKay

from Indigenous Arts

(indigenousarts.net)

and

Don Dionne

from Silver Across

Borders

(silveracrossboarders.com)

. We welcome them with

open arms, and a long list of things to do. Thank you for

stepping up Suzie and Don! We’re glad to have you!

We still need several new Board members, so give me a shout

if you are interested in serving on your Board. We work

hard, and we have a lot of fun in the process.

SAVE THE DATE! Our

Spring 2017 Wholesale Market

is scheduled for

April 7-8 at Isleta

Resort & Casino

. This year’s show—and the reception on Friday night—promises to be spe-

cial as we will be honoring all previous

Artist of the Year

award winners. Reserve your space

now for both the Market and the Reception on our website at

iaca.com

.

For the second year in a row, our

Business of Arts Seminar

features our good friend

Nina

Alexander from the Indian Arts & Crafts Board.

Nina’s presentation last year was terrific,

and we have asked her back by popular demand. Nina will tell us more fascinating tales

from her investigations into fakes and frauds in the Indian art industry. Hear Nina at the

Business of Arts seminar on

Friday, April 7th at 9:00 am

at Isleta Resort & Casino.

And, as a special treat,

Martin Seidel from Golden Fleece Trading

will be talking about

everyone’s favorite stone,

Turquoise

on Friday afternoon! Join Martin for an informal discus-

sion about what is Turquoise and what is not, at 3:00 pm at the Golden Fleece booth.

Following this show,

the IACA Wholesale Market will be suspended

as all wholesale markets are

in decline, and both buyers and sellers are finding other ways to do business. We, like many

wholesale organizations must figure out how to serve our members and their role in the Indi-

an Arts Industry in other ways. Come to the

Annual Meeting

at

8:00 am, Saturday, April 8th

to hear more! Better yet, join the Board to help shape the organization into the future.
