SEPTEMBER 23, 2018
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join Brian Vallo, Director of the Indian Arts Research Center, and a panel of former SAR Native American Artist Fellows as they explore the history and evolution of textile arts in Pueblo communities. Panel includes: Louie Garcia from the Prio Manso Tiwa tribe of Guadalupe Pueblo in Las Cruces, known for revitalizing historic pueblo weaving techniques; Ramona Sakiestewa, a contemporary Hopi artist who lives and works in Santa Fe and is known for tapestries and architectural public art installations; and, Isabel Gonzales of Jemez Pueblo credited for reintroducing historic pueblo embroidery on both traditional and non-traditional textiles. The panel will discuss how the collection, the SAR fellowship, and access to the IARC collections advanced their careers as artists and keepers of traditional knowledge associated with the textile tradition.

Tickets $10. Space is limited, register at: https://sarweb.org/registration/register-public-talk-pueblo-textiles/.

Discussion will be followed by a tour of the IARC featuring signature and rarely seen Pueblo textiles from the collection. Register separately by calling 505-954-7272.
