Spring 2020

We've just returned from our Southwest travels to Hopi, Navajo, Zuni and Acoma lands. What a joy to reconnect with our artist friends, curate new works, listen to stories and observe important renewal ceremonies!

 Check back often as we get new items on line, including exceptional weavings, Acoma pottery and a special collection of Hopi silver jewelry and Katsina dolls.

During this difficult time, we want to convey that you, our friends, customers and artists are certainly on our minds.

Raven Makes Gallery will take appointments to view art, including our new items from the world of the Southwest, the Arctic and beyond. Please call 541-719-1182 or email us at ravenmakesgallery.com. 

Keep our online presence in mind. We are adding new items daily. Know that your patronage supports our artists and their families, many in remote communities. Our role is to continue to offer what our artists have created and through you, support them with sales, courage and appreciation.

Please stay safe and healthy.

Check our drop down gallery menu in our header for additional collections and jewelry artists as well as biographies and regional information. Thanks for finding us and supporting our artistic and cultural communities!

Springtime

A Strong Buffalo, by Jayne and Lynn Quam, at Raven Makes Native American Online Gallery
When we step outside of the gallery space, the reassurance of the natural order of our high desert and volcanic mountain region is in full play during this time.
