Navajo Textile Viewing and Author Talk

Navajo Textile Viewing and Author Talk

Northeast Arizona, land of the Navajo, is home to mother and daughter Lucy and Ellen Begay.

Weaving in the Navajo culture has strong cultural values, and for Lucy and Ellen, weaving is part of their daily rhythm.  Author and collector Gary Beaudoin will soon visit Yolo County to discuss and display the Begays' handmade authentic Navajo textiles.

Gary Beaudoin is the author of Unbroken Web: The Art of Ellen & Lucy Begay, Navajo Weavers.  He is the keeper of a collection of Navajo textiles by the Begays.  The collection spans 20 years of their work and each weaving is one-of-a-kind.  Living a pastoral life in Northeast Arizona, the remote landscape inspires their weaving designs.  The Begays say they weave “what they see”.
