Gathering Tribes: 1412 Solano Ave., Albany CA

He credits his interest in the tribal arts to living on the reservation and being with his family members as they participated in traditional tribal arts and ceremonies.

He has a strong Native art background growing up watching his mother and grandmother rug weave and father silversmith and do beadwork.  Alonzo’s involvement in art began at an early age, with direct influence from his Dine culture and noteworthy artist that have inspired his work in photography, leatherwork, woodworking, beading and silversmithing throughout his life.

Working primarily in silversmithing and beadwork today, he incorporates his feelings of culture, heritage and tradition in his work.  Alonzo also works to convey the customs and lifestyles of the Native people to both natives and non-natives with his contemporary and traditional art.  He spends much of his time making jewelry from semi-precious stones like lapis, abalone, mother-of-pearl, turquoise, coral, and other gemstones, seed beads and sterling silver.  He has developed a unique talent and style for beadwork that only he and his family hand produce in the Southwest.

 Alonzo has exhibited and sold his art at a number of expositions and art shows including the Santa Fe Indian Market, Santa Fe, Navajo Fair and Gathering of Nations; New Mexico, Arizona, CA  Indian Museum and various other locations outside the South West.

All artists showing at Gathering Tribes receive 100% of their sales.
