Native American Art: we feature art from diverse geographic regions in the United States and in diverse media forms. We feature baskets by the Wabanaki tribes of Maine; jewelry from the southwest, the Plains, and Maine; beadwork from Lakota, Arapahoe, Luiseno, Kiowa, Navajo, Mandan, Mohawk, and other peoples; stone and wooden sculptures and carvings from various regions, and more.
Native Americans have been decoratingutilitarian and ceremonial items for thousands of years. Contemporary artists maintain strong ties to the traditional work of their cultures, while adopting new ideas and creating new designs at the same time. These are the types of artists we represent at Home & Away Gallery.
Native American art comes in many styles and forms. Home & Away carries sculptures from the Southwest and from Maine, as well as beadwork from various tribes across the country. Many of the artists with whom we work have been recognized by their peers and by collectors for their outstanding work. Our collection of Wabanaki baskets from Maine outshines that of any other gallery, whether online or in person.
David Shultz, Gallery Director published Baskets of Time: Profiles of Contemporary Maine Basket Makers in 2017. Baskets of Time is an ideal tool for collectors who want to learn more about the weavers they already know or for people who want an introduction to the beautiful basket work produced by the members of the four Wabanaki tribes in Maine.
David will be happy to discuss baskets across a wide variety of styles (colorful vs. natural, curls vs. points) from weavers just beginning their careers to winners of multiple awards at Santa Fe Indian Market.

“My wife and I love to visit Home & Away. The collection of art, baskets and jewelry we find there is of the highest quality and the pieces represent such a diverse cross section of Native American styles.
During the year the owner, David, has artisans visit the gallery to display their work and meet his clients. These visits provide a rare chance for insight into the culture of the artists and how they have mastered their craft.
David has always been the most wonderful host. He gladly offers his knowledge of the works that he sells so not only do we purchase something we like, we feel connected to it because understand who made it and how it was made. Sometimes if there is time he shares a wonderful story of how he came to have some of the pieces that are in the gallery.
We feel lucky to have found Home & Away and will continue to visit for many years to come.”
