A Singular Couture commission will be worn at the Fred Harvey History Weekend at the NM Museum of History, Nov 2-4, 10-5, at La Fonda.
“All Along the Watchtower” was painted by Singular's own Jane Sauer based on the design and murals at Mary Colter’s Desert Watchtower at the Grand Canyon.
The hand painted silk coat features the Watchtower itself on the outside and is reversible, with images from inside the tower on the lining of the coat.
We're honored and excited to have our coat help commemorate this important historical landmark!

HUMMINGBIRD BEAUTY
An Exhibit of Hand Painted Silk Apparel by Zuni Artist
Anthony Gchachu
on
Saturday, October 20, 2-5 pm
Exhibit runs through November 20, 2018
at
Singular Couture
Plaza Galeria, On the Plaza
66 E. San Francisco St
Santa Fe, NM 87501

The artist will be present.

“The most important thing to me is the preservation of Zuni language, traditions, and culture,” says Anthony Gchachu, a mostly self-taught artist working from the Zuni stories and myths he grew up with. Some of his silk apparel pieces show the hummingbird motif alone, in elegant, flowing renderings, or with added touches of expertly painted realist butterflies, bluebirds, Turquoise stones or Puebloan pottery pieces.

A recent work, titled “Save Our World”, on model below, is his most narrative yet, showing the hummingbird motif on the front side emerging from a landscape of black, chasm-like canyons, with a beautiful piece of pottery poised at the edge of a canyon wall. According to Gchachu the traditionally painted black and white pot “represents the Zuni people, our culture and everything we are given by our elders to hold.” Its precarious position portrays the urgency of cultural preservation powerfully. The rather ominous canyons transform as they wind around to the backside of the coat, becoming gentler mesas with a wide river flowing through them. The traditional figure of the Rainbow Dancer is shown flying above the scene, as he is “the bringer of life-giving rains,” explains Gchachu.

But perhaps the best of all is a wonderful surprise Gchachu has included in the piece by painting, on the inside of the pocket, a small badger, his gaze directed to the positive outcome painted on the back side. Here is the key to preserving tradition and culture, for the badger represents boldness, passion and persistence: carry him with you and you will not give up until you reach your desired goal. To wear such a beautiful and meaningful work of art is a rare and transformative experience, allowing the wearer to feel Gchachu’s call for preservation deeply and to celebrate its cause wherever you go.

These beautiful garments are one of a kind. We hope you can join us for the opening on Saturday, October 20!

Here's a behind the scenes peek at a work In Progress by Valentin Arrellin. Meticulously marked out and painstakingly taped off...then 3 coats of paint for a super saturated luster. A masterpiece!
