Join Us for the Visual Arts Exhibition Opening: “Weaving Prayers: Ocean’s Edge to Mesa’s Ledge” by Roberta Begaye

Experience an evening of art, culture, and inspiration at the Dairy Arts Center as we unveil “Weaving Prayers: Ocean’s Edge to Mesa’s Ledge,” a captivating exhibition by acclaimed artist Roberta Begaye.

Meet the Artist: Attendees will have the unique opportunity to meet Roberta Begaye in person. Engage with her about the profound journey that informs her art and the cultural significance behind her works.

Refreshments: Enjoy a variety of refreshments available for purchase as you explore the exhibition.

About the Art: “Weaving Prayers: Ocean’s Edge to Mesa’s Ledge” is a poignant collection that reflects a journey of culture, prayers, and hope for the Navajo people. Roberta Begaye, a member of two Water Clans—Bitterwater and Zuni-Edgewater—draws upon the sacred element of water, essential to all life. Her art is a heartfelt offering to the Holy People of rain and thunder, a call for moisture and blessings for her homeland.

Though not a medicine person herself, Roberta honors the legacy of her grandparents, who were healers, by continuing the tradition of praying for rain. Through her paintings, created while submerged in rivers or oceans, she channels her prayers and the faith of her traditional upbringing.

Don’t miss this extraordinary event! Join us to celebrate the fusion of art and cultural heritage, and to support an artist dedicated to preserving and honoring her roots.
