Mike Esch
Painting Demonstration
Saturday, May 20, 1-3 pm
Santa Fe, NM

Mike Esch will be in our Santa Fe gallery today, Saturday, May 20, from 1-3 pm for an oil-on-canvas painting demonstration.  Mike is from Colorado and captures the drama and beauty of the region in each painting.  His paintings are not just about place but are meant to capture the mood and light of the ever-changing Western skies.  This is an excellent opportunity to meet Mike and watch some of the process in person or in our Instagram stories.  

Thank you to everyone who attended our season's final event in Scottsdale:  "Form Focused" with Daniel Begay (Dine/Santa Clara).  Daniel created some unique larger pieces and had a fun demonstration of his technique in the gallery.  

In two weeks, our Summer Santa Fe shows begin with Chase Earles on Saturday, June 3.  His new work, "Ancient Ancestors," continues his work in Indigenous Futurism and ancient Caddo pottery shapes, forms, and designs.
I am excited to hear from you with any questions or suggestions.

It's always a fun surprise when you open a book and find a photo of a piece we have in the gallery that was published in the past.  This jar by Tse-Pe and Dora (San Ildefonso) (1973) was published in Exxon Magazine.  It's a great piece of provenance for this classic piece of their pottery!
One of the best parts of the gallery is when potters bring in new work!  It's great to have a moment to chat with them about the new pieces, their lives, and what they are working on next.  Here are a few artists who recently brought new work to the gallery!
Thanks to Daniel Begay (Dine/Santa Clara) for last month's exceptional show at King Galleries in Scottsdale.  His new works were stunning in size, shape, and design. Thank you to everyone for making the show a sell-out!
We look forward to having new work from Daniel over the next few months and new work during Indian Market in August.
Our next show is with Chase Kawinhut Earles (Caddo).  He has created an exciting new group of pieces for his show, "Ancient Ancestors." It opens Saturday, June 3, in Santa Fe.  Chase said of this show:

"Over the past several years, I have explored Native American Futurism within the context of Star Wars imagery.  Recently, I have tried to reconcile that the ideas of Bigfoot or UFOs are some new phenomena.  The truth is these have long been part of Native American cultural identity.  We have revered the "Sky People" and "Hairy Man" for over 1000 years.  Much of what is "paranormal" in contemporary culture is "normal" in ours.  I prefer to think our ancestors, not the "ancient aliens," created amazing ancient architecture and art in the Americas.  Maybe they were impressed with our work when they visited, and we even supplied them with ideas.  We were the Ancient Ancestors."

“This exceptional gallery not only showcases Native American pottery, but it successfully manages to elevate the underappreciated art form beyond the Southwestern clichés that have overshadowed its beauty. Owner Charles King is a noted collector of Native American ceramics, and his gallery’s pieces, which range from traditional to contemporary, shouldn’t be missed.” – Travel and Leisure Magazine

“At the forefront is Charles King of King Galleries. He is considered by many to be the dean of contemporary southwestern Native clay arts. Today King represents virtually all of the top southwestern Native ceramics artists. He respects tradition but also encourages artists to stretch beyond expectation.” – Cowboys & Indians Magazine
