Make Meaningful Purchase this Black Friday
Black Friday is the perfect time to rack your brain for gifts for a loved one. During the holiday season, many people also look for ways to support local businesses and artists, an important step in supporting their community. Does this sound like you? Because this year, you’re in luck! You can find all those things rolled into one at the new Turquoise Skies gallery, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico!
Turquoise Skies is a local Albuquerque jewelry business that supports and promotes Native American artists. Over the last several years, the company has funded an artist co-op that offers Native artists equipment and space to create their pieces, allowing many of them to conquer the often daunting task of dealing with the business aspect of creating art.
Why did we open a gallery in Albuquerque?
Our vision for our new gallery is to be more than just a simple shop. We opened a gallery so you can find affordable holiday gifts and watch them being made. You can also speak with one of our gallery’s artists and have something custom made. You can also see our artists working in the workshop through the windows set into the walls of the gallery.
The best part of this new venture is that a percentage of the purchases customers make goes into a fund to continue to provide supplies, tools, and equipment for the artists. You can feel even better about your Black Friday purchases knowing the support you are providing.
What are our future plans?
There are long-term plans for the gallery include weekend shows and longer hours. A wider variety of art will also be added as time goes on. Customers can and should return over and over again to see all the new additions to our space.
The gallery is located at 3700 Osuna in Suite 505 Albuquerque, New Mexico. If you have any questions, please call us at 505-508-0773. Our opening hours for Black Friday 2018 will be 12-6. We will be extending our Instagram Exclusive sale to all purchases made in the shop so we hope to see you there!
