My wife Ivy and I traveled to Scottsdale, Arizona in late July to attend the 47th annual conference of the Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP). It was 116 degrees when we arrived. We picked up the rental car and drove through the desert to the hotel and I could see the outlines of the mountains and the cacti against the starry night.

The works of 37 artists who are native to the Americas are separated into conceptual categories including indigenous, immigrant and assimilated, but the show as whole is a gorgeous, earthy ode to all things bright and beautiful, heavy and serious.
