“Deeply Rooted” - The Generations of Mosaic Thunderbird Necklaces, from Found Objects to the Finest Materials
Presenters: Apprentice Artist Reyes Rosita Pacheco and Master Jeweler Martine Lovato from the Kewa (Santo Domingo Pueblo).
Join featured Pueblo artists of Mosaic Patterns of the Thunderbird Exhibition, Apprentice Reyes Rosita Pacheco and Master Jeweler Martine Lovato as they share their personal stories and their family history of creating Thunderbird jewelry. This art form has been passed down from generation to generations. As an emerging fine art jeweler, Reyes has been her Uncle Martine’s apprentice for seven years; her and her family live and assist Martine with all aspects of his daily life – from general well-being, to healing, to his art and love & support. Reyes has been encouraged by her Uncle Martine, to test her limitations and to be a perfectionist with her skills and knowledge of art. We invite you to join us for coffee and conversation as we learn more about this remarkable and creative Kewa family.
