Luce Artist Biography

Little is known about the Navajo artist Penny Emerson, except that she learned to make pottery from the artist Faye Tso, who is also represented in this collection (Chuck and Jan Rosenak, The People Speak: Navajo Folk Art, 1994). In 1984, Emerson won Best in Show at the thirty-eighth annual Navajo Nation Fair.
