An Ageless Craft: Historic and Modern Pueblo Pottery

Thursday, October 17, 2019, 4:00 PM - 4:00 AM

For hundreds of years the peoples of the Rio Grande Valley and beyond made breathtaking pottery that was used for domestic as well as ceremonial purposes. Through the passage of time, generations of masters have continued to practice their arts, continuing to create stunning pieces that have merged centuries of traditions with modern artistic sensibilities. Although they are geographically close together and share many cultural similarities, each pueblo has developed its own style that is unique to them. "An Ageless Craft" will display the work of potters from most of the Rio Grande and Western Pueblos including Maria Martinez of San Ildefonso, the Nampeyo family of First Mesa (Hopi), and Albert Alvidrez of Ysleta del Sur. This is a not to miss opportunity to experience the continuation of age-old pueblo traditions through over two hundred beautiful works of art from the Museum's permanent collection, El Paso Archaeological Society's collection, and items on loan from the private collection of Albert Alvidrez. This is the largest exhibition ever undertaken by the Museum. On view through Jan. 11.2020
