Clay Line of the Red Willow People: A Showcase of Three Taos Pueblo Artists

Overview

Clay Line of the Red Willow People: A Showcase of Three Taos Pueblo Artists, opens January 20, 2023, with a public reception from 5 – 7, in Artists Circle Gallery at the South Entrance. The exhibition runs through May 22, 2023.

This exhibition affords the opportunity to see Taos Pueblo at its finest through the eyes of three talented artists who were born and raised in this community. Taos Pueblo is and has been a thriving Native community, before contact and earlier. Located in Northern New Mexico, the Pueblo is designated as a World Heritage Site for being the longest continually inhabited community.

Through their art work, these three artists represent the resilience and beauty of the Pueblo that exists today. The commonality is clay, mud, the ground, and the strength this holds for them as Red Willow People.

The clay is the life line that runs through the imagery that each artist makes visible in their work and design.

The three artists are: Angie Yazzie, Micaceous Potter; Brian Taaffe, Painter; Deborah Lujan, Photographer. Each of these artists bring their perspective of how they are grounded in the beauty of their surroundings through their art.
