Joe and Cindy Tanner are among the best-known American Indian art traders in the Southwest. Joe is a fourth-generation “old-school” trader and an authority on turquoise sources, history, and use. He and his wife, Cindy, have helped advance the careers of some of the most recognizable Southwest Indian artists.
Emerald Tanner is a fifth-generation trader and the daughter of Joe and Cindy Tanner. She loves cultivating relationships between collectors, artists, and colleagues. Emerald has offered education seminars on turquoise and contemporary American Indian jewelry for archaeological groups, museums, and collectors.
Each trading post we visit features some of the traders' favorite artists and on-site demonstrations. There are opportunities for discussions with the scholars and artists.
