A Century of Hopi-Tewa Pottery: From Nampeyo of Hano to Mark Tahbo Exhibit

Hopi Show Catalog Cover 2018



Adobe Gallery's special exhibit "A Century of Hopi-Tewa Pottery: From Nampeyo of Hano to Mark Tahbo" will open Monday, August 7, with reception at 221 Canyon Road from 5 to 7pm.

Legendary Hopi matriarch Nampeyo of Hano used designs created by her prehistoric ancestors to bring Hopi pottery to the masses in the early 1900s.  Today, Hopi potters like Mark Tahbo use Nampeyo's designs as inspiration for their new works.  This exhibit, which features works by both of these potters and many others who produced between them, will showcase the ways that today's artists continue to be influenced by those of yesteryear.

With this exhibit, we wish to shine a light on the link between New Mexico Pueblo Indians and the pottery being produced today at Hopi. The majority of the potters whose works we feature in this exhibit are Hopi-Tewa people-the descendants of those who migrated to Hopi from New Mexico's Tano Pueblo in the 1690s.
