Ulysses Reid: Artist Talk, Reception, and Open Studio
2009 Ronald and Susan Dubin Native Artist Fellow
Artist Talk, SAR Boardroom and the Dubin Studio
Thursday, August 6, 2009, 5:30–7:00 pm
Zia potter Ulysses Reid spent many years dedicating himself to his tribe by working for the Pueblo of Zia language and cultural preservation program. His achievements included developing a teacher certification process and creating the Zia oral history and photo archives. While working for the Pueblo, Ulysses coordinated several community pottery projects with expert potter Lois Medina. It was during these programs that he learned the locations of mineral paints and clays.
His formal training started in 2004 when he was awarded a Folk Art Apprenticeship Grant from the New Mexico Arts to work with his mentor Rufina Panana. In a very short amount of time, Ulysses became known for his work with Zia and Mesa Verde pottery designs.
