A Prince Rupert artist showcased her work at the Santa Fe Indian Market and came away with two first-place ribbons and one for second place for her wood carvings.

First Nations artists from across North America are featured in annual weekend festival in New Mexico. Dale Campbell sent photos of her work into the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA) organization and was selected to be in the show.

“It was so exciting. It’s a huge show. It’s so big that last year my brother and I went to check it out and it took us all day from 9-5 to get to every table. The art is incredible. You’re seeing the best of the best,” Campbell said.

The market has been around for 95 years and is a juried Native arts show that takes place in the third weekend of August every year. More than 1,100 artists from the U.S. and Canada sell their work at the market, which gets more than 100,000 visitors from around the world.

Campbell shared a table with her brother, Terrance, and displayed her wood carvings and jewelry. She’s been working as an artist for 40 years and learned from Dempsey Bob and Freda Diesing. Campbell usually has her work in galleries in the south of the province
