The exhibit uses historic photographs, artifacts, and first-hand accounts to explore 260 years of Cornwall’s relationship with its forests, showing how and why the town transformed from forest to farm and back to forest. The exhibit will also explore changing attitudes about the forest, from the 18th century view of woods as a source of timber to more recent concepts of the forest as a setting for recreation and as a vital ecosystem.
In the Rio Grande River Valley of central New Mexico and eastern Arizona, the Pueblos, a people spread over 19 communities, continue to practice their ancient art of pottery-making. Descendents of the Anasazi, the Pueblo People, still use the traditional coiling methods and decorative patterns that have distinguished their work for centuries..
This exhibit compares and contrasts the unique style of each Pueblo community and highlights individual artists who have shaped this timeless craft.
The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00am - 5:00pm* and Sunday 12:00pm to 5:00pm * *Last admission 4:30pm
To complement our Stories in Clay exhibition, IAIS is proud to highlight the artwork of Johnnie Lujan of the Pueblo of Isleta in central New Mexico during the months of July, August and September. As a child, Johnnie sat at his Grandmother’s knee while she fashioned and baked the cooking pots they would need for everyday use as well as the pottery they would decorate and sell. At an early age Johnnie began drawing and decorating everything insight. He studied illustration and drafting at the Design Drafting School of Colorado where he later worked as a substitute instructor of technical illustration. Johnnie continues to design ceramic pieces, as well as his modern skull paintings and pen & ink drawings.
