Brian Vallo, director of SAR’s Indian Arts Research Center, and a panel of Native American artists explore the history and evolution of textile arts in Pueblo communities. The panel includes: Louie Garcia from the Prio Manso Tiwa tribe of Guadalupe Pueblo in Las Cruces, known for revitalizing historic pueblo weaving techniques; Aric Chopito from Zuni Pueblo, who is a traditional weaver and was the 2010 Rollin and Mary Ella King Native artist fellow at SAR; and, Isabel Gonzales of Jemez Pueblo credited for reintroducing historic pueblo embroidery on both traditional and non-traditional textiles. The panelists will discuss how the collection, the SAR fellowship, and access to the IARC collections have advanced their careers as artists and as keepers of traditional knowledge associated with the textile tradition.
Presentations and panel discussions will take place at St. Francis Auditorium at 107 West Palace Ave. at the New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
