Culture Connect Featured Event
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.
