Weems Gallery sale will benefit youth project

Correction: A previous version of this article listed the incorrect address for the art sale. It has been corrected. 

Albuquerque-based Weems Gallery and Framing will gift proceeds from the sale of donated items to the National Indian Youth Leadership Project, according to a news release.

The sale will take place during normal business hours July 23-25 at 5935 Wyoming NE. The sale will include historical art, pottery and baskets, which have been donated by Manitou Gallery in Santa Fe. The gallery purchased the items from a private collection at auction.

The NIYLP works with middle and high school students of Native American backgrounds providing support and resources through year-round curriculum both in schools and outdoors.
