The Deep History of Indian Market Pottery Traditions

August 14, 2018


Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at 12:00 noon, free!

Eric Blinman (director of the Office of Archaeological Studies) explores the modern ceramic traditions at the Santa Fe Indian Market and their connections to the past.

Indian Market is a remarkable feast of Native American arts, and pottery is a major component of the market. Although there is continuity between the past and the present, Market traditions provide an opportunity to look at the changes that have occurred during the past several centuries in form, function, materials, technology, and style.

The Brown Bag talk will take place at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology at 12:00 noon in the CNMA library. Seating is limited. Admission is free.

The Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road) is located off of Caja del Rio Road, across from Challenge New Mexico on the way to the Santa Fe Municipal Golf Course. Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road. CNMA is on the left-hand side of the road and is the large building with white sail-like skylights on the roof.
