2019 Poster Art by Yazzie


2019 Official Poster

Congratulations to NWNMAC board member, contemporary Diné - Hopi Artist, Venaya Yazzie whose art has been selected as the 2019 official poster for the 98th Annual Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial on August 2-11, 2019 at Red Rock State Park, in Gallup, NM. Venaya will be present for the event to sign posters and artist demo.

"Dawn Mist Girl" is a mixed media piece on Arches archival paper. The painting is rooted in the stories of Dine' (Navajo) story of emergence and migration of the People in the time before the Fourth World existence.



The Northwest New Mexico Arts Council was formed to sponsor and encourage cultural and educational activities in Northwest New Mexico. The Council sponsors cooperative planning, research, fund raising, and public education programs, administers property, and undertakes such other services and programs deemed necessary to encourage participation and appreciation of arts by all citizens in the area. Overall organizational development and growth is a current target of the organization, rather than the current trend of proceeding on a project-by-project basis. Art shows and performances are the present project focus.

Our Mission

The Northwest New Mexico Arts Council is a supporter and advocate for the visual, literary and performing arts in Northwest New Mexico. It will seek to develop and provide education that will enhance the appreciation of all visual, literary and performing arts within the region. The Northwest New Mexico Arts Council recognizes the diversity of all cultures that contribute to the arts, and will support all traditions and art forms equally and enthusiastically.
