Tea and Turquoise with Carrie Cannon
The Fine Art Museum of Sedona hosted “Tea and Turquoise” on December 8, 2019 from 2:00 to 4:30pm at Heartline Café.
Featured Speaker Carrie Cannon, a member of the Kiowa tribe of Oklahoma, has lived and worked in Arizona for the Hualapai Tribe since 2005. She talked about the special significance of turquoise to individual tribes, as well as distinctive cultural styles, its influences in the southwest and the history and mining of this wondrous stone.
Our “Tea” featured Trailhead Teas; and southwest influenced teacakes and sandwiches created by Heartline Cafe’.
In addition, the jewelry of three distinctive turquoise jewelry vendors Michael Grant, the Lister family and our speaker Carrie Cannon were showcased for private viewing and purchasing!
Carrie brought with her boxes and bags of turquoise samples: rough and polished stones, that were passed through the audience to handle and see at the differences in color and texture. It was one of the highlights of her program.
Phyllis Cline, owner of Heartline, outdid herself with very creative tea sandwiches And salads and desserts – all with a southwestern flair. According to the feedback from attendees, Tea & Turquoise was a unique education opportunity provided by The Museum. Our thank you to all who attended!
