One Trader’s Legacy: Steve Getzwiller Collects the West, features a rare collection of Native American pieces from the owner of Nizhoni Ranch Gallery, located in Sonoita, Arizona. It will include Tucson Sheriff's guns, saddles and horse gear, as well as Native American art, rugs, baskets, pottery, paintings and more. A 7th generation rancher and a natural trader, Getzwiller would spend weeks on the road brokering weavings for trading posts. While he has previously contributed to museums for exhibitions of historic and contemporary Navajo Textiles, One Trader’s Legacy marks the first time that Getzwiller’s personal collection will be on public display.
