About Morning Star

Pueblo Splendor, August 2014

Morning Star Gallery is located in a beautiful historic building on Canyon Road in the heart of the art district in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since the establishment of the gallery in 1984, Morning Star has been recognized for carrying cultural and artistic treasures of unparalleled quality and beauty from over fifty Native North American tribes.

The founding principle of the gallery was to cohesively apply the tenets of connoisseurship across the diversity of material available from Native North America--bead and quillwork from the Plains; pottery, textiles, jewelry and Katsinas from the Southwest; baskets from the Great Basin and California; and wooden sculpture from the Northeast and Northwest Coast.

In 2002, Nedra Matteucci Galleries acquired Morning Star Gallery as a natural compliment to their important American paintings and sculpture. Over the last few years we have expanded our areas of expertise and product line to include antique New Mexican furniture and devotional art. We are also proud to now represent the best Native American artists working today.

Our staff is happy to help and advise collectors on all aspects of acquiring, installing, conserving and appraising of material. As members of the Antique Tribal Art Dealers Association (ATADA), our staff upholds the highest standards of customer service.
