We, Chris Morin and LaRita Chapman, concluded our teaching careers at the end of the 2015-16 school year in Chinle, Arizona, on the Navajo Nation. Prior to that, we taught in Alaska. Raven Makes Gallery opened in Sisters, Oregon on July 1st, 2016.
Our years teaching in Alaska and the Navajo Nation of Arizona allowed us to develop lasting relationships with these artists and their families. We understand the economic situations in the Native American communities and how everyone in their communities benefit when the artisans are successful. Therefore, the gallery is intended to provide opportunities and support for both them and us.
Our commitment and respect for our artists extends to our customers as well. Being fair to our artists allows us to offer reasonable prices on authentic, unique and beautiful art and craftwork. We hope you find your exceptional piece from our diverse and special collections.
