Art, "The Shaliko's Dance", Zuni, Monoprint with Oil, KJM Sadock, 1035
A beautiful unique piece by the late Kitty Van Meter Sadock, this colorful creation is a linen monoprint embellished with oil-painted characters. The piece, titled “The Shaliko’s Dance” dates back to the mid-1900s, and is a fabulous way to add some southwestern style to your abode.
Kitty grew up in Moline, IL. She was a graduate of Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA, receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree. She moved to Albuquerque in 1948 to devote to her art. She married Dr. Theodore Sadock in 1950 and moved to New York for him to complete his residency. While in New York, Kitty worked as a window dresser for a downtown department store. Kitty and her husband returned to Albuquerque in 1952 where she became notable on the art scene. Her paintings are in both private and public collections.
