Heyoka Merrifield on Sundancing with the Muse

Jun 19th, 2011 Posted in | Comments Off

Heyoka Merrifield is a jeweler, sculptor and Heyokaauthor living in southwest Montana. Searching for why ancient sacred art pieces radiated inner life and power led him on a life-long quest of learning from the same source that illuminated these artistic ancestors. On his journey toward understanding sacred art, he embraced the Native American shamanic traditions and was able to experience the universality of ceremonial art. His fulfillment in touching the sacred within his art has brought international acclaim to his work. Notable artists who have been attracted to Heyoka’s work include Bob Dylan, George Harrison, and Joni Mitchell. Heyoka is returning to Santa Fe for a screening of “Sundancing With The Muse,” a film about his personal and creative journey, and he will be presenting his jewelry at Tresa Vorenberg Goldsmiths Gallery.
