|Detail of Juanita Growing Thunder Fogarty's Award-Winning Piece|
Every year at SWAIA Indian Market, I have a new favorite artist. This year it is is Assiniboine Sioux doll maker, bead and quill worker Juanita Growing Thunder Fogarty. In addition to her breathtaking art work, Juanita is also one of the nicest people I've ever met. It was by chance that I ended up at her booth at the 2011 SWAIA Indian Market, and she warmly welcomed me under the white tent to talk to me about her work and her family's history participating in Indian Market. She has been juried into the show for the last 26 years, and is a protege of her award-winning mother and collaborator Joyce Growing Thunder.
