Emerging artist Franklin Peters of Acoma Pueblo spent three months studying the collections at the Indian Arts Research Center to better understand the techniques and processes of his ancestors. During his residency, he sought to increase the size of his ollas and incorporate historical designs into his work. Join the School for Advanced Research on November 28th to hear about his experience as the 2011 Rollin and Mary Ella King Native Artist Fellow. The evening will conclude with a visit to the Dubin Studio to see Franklin’s pottery, which will be available for purchase.
Franklin notes, “I have already explored different Acoma styles in my work over the past eighteen years, but look forward to further developing my pottery by researching the sources of Acoma pottery designs from the past.”
