Dan Namingha is one of the best known Native American artists in the world. The Tewa-Hopi artist and his wife Frances opened Niman Fine Art in 1990 to showcase his work. Today, the gallery also represents the work of their two sons: Arlo, a sculptor and jeweler and Michael, a conceptual photographer. Dan's contemporary paintings, which helped define Southwest art in the 1970s and 1980s, have been shown at galleries and museums throughout the USA and abroad, including one-man shows at the Fogg Art Museum, Carnegie Mellon University and the Palm Springs Art Museum. He also creates contemporary sculptures, collages and lithographs. Both Arlo and Michael have also exhibited around the world in such diverse places as Monaco and China. The Naminghas also mentor and show the work of young up-and-coming artists they've discovered.
