The Powell Museum Store is proud to present some of the finest work of area artists. The silver jewelry of Jim Page is steeped in Native American symbolism and made from the finest silver. Mark Law carves rare woods and minerals — some found and some purchased — and turns them into remarkable pieces of art. Glen Canyon artist Joy Dennis blends glass pieces in the kiln and produces sparkling plates and decorative pieces. Traditional Navajo horsehair pottery created by Venita Whitegoat tells the stories of her tribe and their beliefs. Frank Talbott’s digital “scanography” finds the beauty in the simplest of natural objects. The prices for this art are very reasonable.
The Museum Store regularly displays and sells a variety of ammonites, fern and fish fossils, sandstone sculptures, and other collectibles from the earth. Young geologists can also choose from a variety of kits to start them on their journey. We buy only from reputable dealers in the fossil and mineral market and carry certificates of authenticity when applicable.
