“Tony Abeyta: New Work”
Turquoise GalleryTurquoise Tortoise Gallery is pleased to present their annual showcase for one of the gallery’s most accomplished artists. Tony Abeyta’s paintings are lauded by Contemporary art collectors as often as collectors of Native American art, and have great cross-over appeal; Tony Abeyta is Navajo and his heritage is a driving force behind his work yet his themes portrayed are universal. For collectors wishing to capture this newest direction of Abeyta’s ever-evolving artistry the gallery offers works such as “Moth,” a new mixed media triptych measuring 40” high and 90” wide. With a subtle palette of charcoal and walnut inks, both motion and life are presented; moths and flowers, wings and petals, light and dark.For more information please visit the Turquoise Tortoise Gallery.
