Toh Atin Gallery is not a souvenir shop – it’s a fine arts gallery. It has been in existence since 1957, The gallery is noted for its collection of historic and contemporary Native American rugs. However, it carries a wide range of other Native American and Southwestern art including pottery, jewelry, paintings, baskets, Katchina dolls and sculpture.
You could easily spend two to three hours looking at the full collection of their inventory and on a quiet day getting an education about native arts. If you’re interested in Native American art, but not very knowledgeable ask questions; particularly ask for comparisons between higher end and lower end pieces.

Jackson Clark, one of the owners of the Toh Atin Gallery, is a recognized expert in Navajo weavings. Before you purchase a rug or blanket you can learn what to look for, such as symmetry, tightness of weave and color consistency. Some of the weavings sold here can be used as floor decoration while others require special care. Prices range from a few dollars to more than $50,000. We personally know Southwestern Native American Art and know this is a gallery where you will find authentic, quality pieces.
