Another great mention of Quincy Tahoma: The Life and Legacy of a Navajo Artist. New Mexico Magazine, in its September issue had a full page that reproduced a Tahoma painting and the picture of Quincy leaning against the porch column looking quite happy with himself.
With all the wonderful publicity Tahoma and the book have been getting, like our appearance on the Bill Buckmaster show in Tucson and the listing of the book in Native Peoples Magazine, it is no wonder that our calendars keep filling up with people who want to know more about Quincy Tahoma: The Life and Legacy of a Navajo Artist.
We hope that you’re noting the events that are near you, and if we are not scheduled to visit your neighborhood–why not invite us?
