About the Blue Deer Gallery
Who we are, and how we got here.
 

The Blue Deer Gallery has been serving Dallas/Fort Worth
since 1993, focusing on museum-quality works of authentic
American Indian Art.  We specialize in traditional works
on paper, but have expanded into pottery, jewelry, kachina
carvings, basketry and sculpture.  We began representing
five contemporary American Indian artists - Merlin Little
Thunder, Gina Gray, Valjean Hessing, Jane Mauldin, and
Doc Tate Nevaquaya.  Within six months, we added Sherman
Chaddlesone, Joan Hill and Fernando Padilla.  From there,
we expanded into vintage, traditional Indian painting,
which has become our speciality.  Over the years, we have
carried original paintings by such noted traditional masters
as Allan Houser, Crescencio Martinez, Ma Pe Wi, Awa Tsireh,
Carl Sweezy, Stephen Mopope, Cecil Dick, Woodrow Crumbo,
Pablita Velarde, Oqwa Pi, and Tonita Pena.
 
The Gallery was founded by the late Wilson Hummingbird, and
Gallery operations are carried out by Edward Hummingbird
and Gary Hummingbird - both respected Indian artists with
detailed knowledge of American Indian art and culture.  They
have exhibited their works, curated exhibitions, and lectured
on American Indian art and culture extensively.  Edward has
frequently served as a judge for major Indian art competitions
(from the festival to the museum levels).


The Blue Deer Gallery opened its web site in 1999, and has
served as one of the premier online sources for quality art
and craft of the American Indian.  We have helped build some
of the finest private collections of American Indian painting
in the country, and have placed works into collections on a
worldwide basis. 

Note:  The gallery collection has been relocated to Albuquerque,
New Mexico; however, arrangements can still be made to view
works in the Dalas/Fort Worth area.  We can still provide free
delivery of major purchases to buyers in the Dallas/Fort worth
area.
