CNHA and auctioneers R. B. Burnham & Co. will again be presenting over two hundred quality Navajo rugs and other Native American items for auction in scenic Moab, Utah. Proceeds benefit Navajo weavers and scientific research on the Colorado Plateau.

The auction venue is a great way to learn about Native American art. The Burnham crew is happy to spend time before and after the auction discussing artists, art, and other aspects of the area where they live and work.

While you are in town for the auction, you can also enjoy the Moab Music Festival, and be treated to not only beautifully crafted Navajo rugs, but also to great music by world-class musicians!

About R. B. Burnham & Co. auctioneers
The Burnham family has been trading with the native people of the Four Corners area for five generations. Working with the weavers, they have helped to develop several distinct rug styles including the New Lands Raised Outline, Burntwater, Germantown Revival and Spider Rock. The Burnham's are noted for their encouragement of innovation and quality in Navajo textiles.

Discover the beauty and artistry of Navajo weaving at CNHA's 2nd Annual Navajo Rug Auction!

Saturday, September 8th, at Canyonlands by Night in Moab.
