We are very excited to introduce you to our good friend, Donovan Yazzie.  We have known Donovan for many years and have enjoyed watching his art evolve into the amazing pieces that he is currently creating.  Please join us in welcoming Donovan and his newest works to Gathering Tribes during the Solano Art Walk from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 12th.

Donovan Yazzie specializes in bronze and metal sculptures, and is also a painter, jeweler, beadworker and he even does embroidery!  All of his work is inspired by his traditional Navajo upbringing.  Donovan was born and raised on the Navajo Nation in White Cone, AZ.  He is the youngest of twelve children, and grew up in a family strong in Navajo traditional ways.  As the son of a well–respected traditional Navajo medicine man, Donovan grew up spiritually grounded, often participating in and assisting his father in prayer ceremonies.  He also helped care for the sheep and livestock and cultivate corn and other food crops for the home.  Donovan’s art reflects all of the sacred elements of life that he grew to love and believe in through spiritual ceremonies and everyday living.
