Turquoise Tortoise Gallery opens “Vessels,” a showcase for the ancient form of humble container now celebrated as art in many mediums and styles. From Santa Clara Pueblo (NM) the gallery offers a new collection of vintage miniature pots by various skilled artists including Tammy Garcia. These small gems range in size from 1.25” high by 1.5” diameter to 2.5” high by 4” diameter and represent the traditional “blackware” style for which the pueblo is known with its deeply carved, etched or sgraffito surfaces as opposed to painted surfaces. Also featured are award-winning segmented wood turned vessels by Larry Witt, Rainforest Baskets, Hopi pottery by Raynard Navasie and Nona Naha, Contemporary Navajo pottery by Ida Sahmie and exquisite Zuni wedding pots by Tony Lorenzo. Exhibition through August 10th.
