About the Artist
(1937-1976) The Zuni artist Dixon Shebola was active from the early to mid 1950's until his death. He was not limited to making jewelry. Dixon's skill with channel inlay and mosaic jewelry carried over to the dance scenes he painted on leather.
In 1955 he studied at the Santa Fe Indian School and at the Albuquerque Indian School, both in New Mexico.
Recognition outside trading circles came with a 1st place award at the 1964 Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial in Gallup, New Mexico. Before and after this event he exhibited and sold his art at the Inter-Tribal Ceremonial and at the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque.
Dixon Shebola painted murals with Charles Vicenti for the Berlos Community Center. His work is in many collections including the Philbrook Art Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
