While many collectors don't think of Albuquerque when they think of SWAIA Indian Market, some actually make a plan to check things out at ABQ's Old Town Plaza. There are a number of shops offering authentic, handmade Native American art, but Andrews Pueblo Pottery and Art Gallery by far has the best selection of contemporary Pueblo pottery and art in town with some of the best prices in New Mexico, including the work of 2008 Indian Market "Best in Show" artist Sheldon Harvey. Owner Bob Andrews' prices are so competitive, it makes it worth the trip on the New Mexico Railrunner or by car just to see what you can find.
Since I spend a great deal of time at Andrews, it was a no-brainer to talk to Bob about how the economy has affected the gallery, what they do to attract Indian Market goers to the gallery, and how the whole season contributes to his business's bottom line. Watch my interview with Bob Andrews HERE:
