FaraHNHeight Fine Art is an art gallery that focuses primarily on the contemporary works of both emerging and established Native American, First Nations, and Indigenous artists of the Americas. Contemporary Southwestern artwork by non-Indigenous artists is also featured on occasion.
Sacred Chaos was one of FaraHNHeight’s exhibitions in the fall. The artwork in this post is a follow-up to some of the fantastic works featured throughout its run.
FaraHNHeight Fine Art’s mission is to promote creativity, learning, and growth in the careers of our artists and promote stories that illuminate the vital context that informs the art of Indigenous people.
