THE WHEELWRIGHT MUSEUM THE WHEELWRIGHT MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN INDIAN presents "Eveli: Energy and Significance" through January 15, 2017. In 1968 a twenty-eight-year-old Eveli Sabatie moved from Paris to San Francisco. Like many young people of the day, she had become deeply interested in Native American cultures, and had traveled to the United States hoping to connect and to learn. A chance encounter with Hopi traditionalist Thomas Banyacya resulted in an invitation to attend the Powamuya (Bean Dance) ceremony at Third Mesa. There, in a local laundromat, she met the legendary master jeweler Charles Loloma. The exhibition is a retrospective on the work of Sabatie, one of only two jewelers (the other is Verma Nequatewa) whom Loloma recognized as protégés. Shown are Blue Reeds and Purple Nights and Orchards of Love bracelets. 704 Camino Lejo, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505; 505.982.4636; www.wheelwright.org. 13 ORNAMENT 39.1.2016
