Noel-cropped.png

NOËL BENNETT :: ART is a culmination of deep cross-cultural listening. Sensuous color and surface distill time and space, express spirit, and elevate the fullness of being.

Biographical notes:
Noël’s eight years living and weaving with the Navajo and subsequent 50-year collaboration with Tiana Bighorse culminated in ten books and over 200 presentations to universities, museums, and textile organizations on Navajo history and culture. Noël paints from her home-studio-gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
