Three centuries of Navajo weaving, from one of the largest private collections in the West, will be on view January 12 through February 24 at Reno's Sierra Navada Museum of Art.

The Durango Collection contains more than 120 pieces of weaving--including garments, rugs, wearing blankets, and saddle blankets--from five major periods. You'll see how much the styles have changed from pre-Columbian days to the present.

You can also attend lectures on 19th-century and contemporary Navajo weaving, and watch a demonstration. The dates weren't known at press time; call (702) 329-3333.

The museum, at 549 Court Street (west of Arlington Avenue), is open 10 to 4 Tuesdays through Fridays, noon to 4 weekends. Admission is $1.50 (50 cents for children under 12). From June 15 through August 31, the collection will be shown at the Denver Museum of Natural History.
