The Verde Valley Archaeology Center will host the fourth annual American Indian Invitational Art show on Saturday, Sept. 29, and Sunday, Sept. 30, at the Camp Verde Community Center.

The event began in 2009 as a fundraiser for the center to further its mission of protecting, preserving and interpreting the valley's archaeological sites and artifacts. Money raised the first year became the seed needed to open the center in October 2010.

Subsequent funding is currently be used to open VVAC's new facility, adjacent to the Community Center at the corner of Main Street and Hollamon St. in downtown Camp Verde.

The show will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday and will feature Hopi, Navajo and Zuni artists as well as artist from Jemez, Cochiti, Santo Domingo, Isleta and Taos pueblos of New Mexico.

Admission is free.

All of the 40 or so artists participating in the show have been through a judging to ensure the highest quality of Native American art will be offered.

The artists will be selling both traditional and contemporary Native American designs of jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, textiles, basketry, carvings and painting.

This will be the first time the event has been held in Camp Verde and represents the center's commitment to building the community as a focal for research and understanding of the ancient cultures that once inhabited the Verde Valley.

The art show is being held in conjunction with the 2012 Native American Film Festival, which will take place on Friday and Saturday at the Camp Verde Multi-Use Complex.
