November 19th, 2020: Rich Ochre and Luminous Silver

As we find ourselves once again slowing down and limiting our activities, we are turning our focus inwards and towards the textures, patterns and colors of our southwestern desert home.

From the burnished ochre on an Acoma polychrome olla, the wonderful striations of brown wool on a twill Navajo saddle blanket, or the precise inlay of Eveli’s ring, which recalls a rich vein of turquoise in its subterranean origins, we find joy in the artistry, tradition and beauty of the region.
