Hubbell Trading Post Auctions
NATIVE AMERICAN ART
September 14, 2013
The Friends of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, in partnership with the National Park Service, conduct two Native American Art Auctions at the park each year. The next auction will be on September 14, 2013. Over 400 items will be offered in each auction including contemporary and antique Navajo weavings, Pueblo Katsina dolls, pottery, paintings, carvings and baskets from several tribes ranging in price from just $20 to over $4000. Our auctions begin at noon, daylight saving time with the preview from 9:00 to 11:00 am.
In addition to the auction the Hubbell family home will be open for tours in the morning and the trading post store will be open throughout the day. Arts, crafts and food vendors will also be on-site for your enjoyment.
The event takes place outdoors in a big tent at the National Historic Site in Ganado, Arizona on Highway 264 (1/2 mile west of Highway 191).
Artists will register their items for the auction from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM; September 9 - 12, 2013. Auction items are registered and sold in numeric order so artists are encouraged to register early to secure low lot numbers. We do not accept items for the auction on Friday and Saturday.
Food and arts and crafts vendors booth reservations must be made in advance. Food booth rentals are $50, Arts and Crafts booths in the tent are $50 and $40 outside of the tent. Vendors are responsible for bringing their own table and chairs. Only authentically handmade Native American art objects will be accepted in the auction and at the vendor tables.
