The Eighth Generation team has selected 13 semi-finalists after a tough and careful review of over 200 submissions from talented artists all across Indian Country! This blog announces the remaining 7. Check out our blog announcing the first 6 Semi-Finalists! After a period of community feedback, we will decide on the final 4.
We encourage you to show love and support for this year's semi-finalists (and the previously highlighted Honorable Mentions)by leaving a comment about your favorites! And remember - the pieces below are samples of the artists' broader work, not necessarily wool blanket designs - so you'll have to use your imagination! A link to the artists website or social media pages has been added whenever possible.
Check out the stunning artwork below, and please don't hesitate to share with your networks!

Geo Neptune’s work blows me away, and I am proud to be their sister, their work represents so much more then just basket-making, it is a voice for the voiceless and the art that they have developed over the years is truly a gift.
