  • Longtime art collector Gary Beaudoin gives readers a rare glimpse into the world of modern Navajo (or Dine) weavers in his book Unbroken Web: The Art of Ellen & Lucy Begay, produced by Sweetgrass Books. Beaudoin and the three generations of Begay weavers-grandmother Mary, mother Lucy, and daughter Ellen-celebrate the spirit of the Southwest in a profoundly personal way. The freshly redesigned work features nineteen exquisite wool textiles crafted by the Begay women, complete with notes about the inspirations and traditions behind the creation of each. Color photographs show the textiles, the weavers at work, and the timeless landscapes that have inspired their ancestors for centuries.
