Pueblo Pottery; Stories in Clay Exhibit

In the Rio Grande River Valley of central New Mexico and eastern Arizona, the Pueblos, a people spread over 19 communities, continue to practice their ancient art of pottery-making.  Descendents of the Anasazi, the Pueblo People, still use the traditional coiling methods and decorative patterns that have distinguished their work for centuries..

This exhibit compares and contrasts the unique style of each Pueblo community and highlights individual artists who have shaped this timeless craft.

 The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00am - 5:00pm* and Sunday 12:00pm to 5:00pm *      *Last admission 4:30pm

 

 

Exhibit: Cecilia Moy Fradet: “Dreams of Devotion and Delight”

A new series of work exploring the inner landscape of the artists’ dreams, blending the commercial with the spiritual.  Delighting in the pop culture of Mickey Mouse, the material expression of joy and all things possible, the artist melds Mickey and Buddha into one sacred Mandela, exploring the boundaries between reality and perception.
