CONGRATULATIONS, Lyndon Tsosie – on winning the First Place award at Santa Fe Indian Market, last year, to add to his many other awards! HIs magnificent, lidded silver box went to a board member of the Museum of Art & Design in New York CIty. Lyndon has continued his winning ways, throughout 2010.
One of the younger generation of leading, innovative, award-winning artists, Lyndon has been heard to say that he didn’t have “the advantage” of learning his skills from his family; he “had to go to school, because (his) parents were both professionals.”
Whatever “obstacles” he had to overcome, he has done to stunning effect. His jewelry, like the artist himself, is grounded in the Navajo tradition, in terms of inspiration and motifs, but finds itself at home everywhere in the sophisticated 21st century world.
