We are weaving a new story together. We choose to value cultural and ecological diversity through the sharing of traditional art in support of native language and life ways and protection of ecologically rich native homelands.
Heartfelt gratitude to all the inspiring Native Artists whose visionary children dance in Weaving Rainbows: Native Art Gallery on 62 Wall St. Asheville, NC.
It’s an honor for this gallery to collaborate with with such devoted cultural stewards and artists. Thank you to the cultural top soil that grew this art and these peoples in connection to the Earth for thousands of years.
Weaving Rainbows is both a Native Art gallery and an educational/healing center. Our commitment for the space and project is ecological empowerment and uplifting art, beauty, cultural thrival and human togetherness.
We are a weaving a rainbow of cultural and ecological diversity through deeply respectful friendships and cultural sharing rooted in fairness, listening and empowerment through our Beyond Fair Trade model.
We believe that cognitive diversity is what preserves biodiversity. As we know most of the worlds biodiversity hotspots are stewarded (and have been for hundreds of generations) by Native Peoples. Native lifeways and ways of understanding are what have and continue to protect life on Earth.
When you support Native Artists and traditional communities through Beyond Fair Trade practices and purchasing of masterful artwork you are also supporting a life way, seed savers, language preservers, stories, soil health, intact forests and protected lands.
