Auction Details

Desert West Auction wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!!!! Remember our Sale Time has changed to 11 AM MST. We will be On-Line with Audio & Visual for this first Auction of year 2019, hope you will be with us.

Judy Savarese has returned to painting, after taking a long desired rest. Her gift of bringing various animals alive on canvas will brighten your life & make you happy that you purchased one of her works of art. I own a horse close-up that I have in my bedroom, every morning when I awaken, he makes me smile. Her touch of closeness with all animals goes far back when she was a small girl growing up at Road Forks, New Mexico. She owned a huge grey jackass that she road every day across the salt flats, looking for treasures of the desert.
Several of her paintings will be featured in the next three auctions for this year.

January Auction features treasures from the Land of Enchantment, Mimbres, New Mexico.
Native American Kachinas, Jewelry, Pottery, Baskets, & Folk Art. South American Anasazi Traders
100% Wool Rugs. Kills Thunder Paintings. Early 1800's original documents & family letters from Kansas, when it was a territory. Seminole & Skookum Dolls from Noted New Mexico Doll Collector.
