CROSSING PATHS OPENS AT THE POEH CULTURAL CENTER
When potters work with clay, they traverse the paths so many generations of potters who have gone before have walked. Crossing Pathways, which opens at the Poeh Cultural Center on March 15, 2019 features the work of Tewa potters Erik Fender and Clarence Cruz, as it represents an intersection in the literal and figurative sense, of potters who continue a traditional art form expressed in a contemporary context.
Erik Fender, a potter and jeweler from San Ildefonso Pueblo, is known for his polychrome as well as black on black pottery, and he often adorns his fired pieces with pieces of turquoise, beads and silver leaf. Clarence Cruz, from the Pueblo of San Juan/Ohkay Owingeh, is recognized for his traditional corrugated, incised, and carved polychrome pottery of San Juan, as well as micaceous pottery. Both artists have been featured in many shows and galleries throughout the Southwest, and both have taught arts classes at the Poeh Cultural Center. And through their eyes and hands, we are invited to remember the beauty of today as we glimpse the past.
The exhibition runs March 15 to June 29, 2019, and we invite you to join us for the opening reception on March 15, 2019 from 5pm to 7pm at the Poeh Cultural Center, 78 Cities of Gold Road, Pojoaque, New Mexico.
