Frank Hill Tribal Arts specializes in antique, native, fine and folk art from the Great American Southwest
We have specialized in antique Navajo, Zuni, Hopi, and Pueblo jewelry for over 25 years. We love the early pieces that were made in the Indian country when skilled native Southwestern silversmiths made these beautiful pieces of jewelry, not as personal adornment, but as a representation of a philosophy of walking in beauty.
Hopi Kachina dolls are traditionally carved for their children. Starting in the 1890’s, Hopi artists began making Kachinas to sell to the tourist market, which let to them being widely collected. We've always had a love for these since visiting Hopi and witnessing the Kachina ceremonies there.
We feature all styles of early Navajo weavings. Pictorials, Germantowns, saddle blankets and transitionals are some of our favorites. Let us know your interests!
We offer fine art, prints, and photography of the West and Mexico, particularly the work of Mexican printmakers, Santa Fe and Taos regional painters, southwestern photography from late 19th and early 20th century, to contemporary photographers.
We have collected and dealt in folk art from Mexico, Guatemala, Africa, Nepal, and Oceanic cultures for over 20 years. Masks have always been a particular interest of ours because they are great pieces of folk sculpture and represent the culture from which they came. We also collect and sell Santos, Retablos, and other folk art.
