Navajo-based show runs through March

TSAILE, Ariz. — Artists Don Whitesinger and Peterson Yazzie first started drawing as kids, illustrating people and things that spontaneously came to mind.

Both studied concepts of art at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe and went on to receive graduate degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design and the University of New Mexico.

Whitesinger teaches studio art at Diné College and Yazzie is an art instructor at Northern Pioneer College in Holbrook, Ariz. The two recently put on loan to Diné College’s Ned Hatathli Museum more than 30 paintings characteristic of the Navajo experience — something each is very proud of.
