Exhibit closing: Loloma: Expressions in Metal, Ink and Clay

Few know that, in addition to being one of Native America’s most beloved and acclaimed jewelers, Charles Loloma (Hopi) also created beautiful pen and ink abstract drawings of landscape and katsina figures.

The exhibit offers fresh insights into the talents of this leading Native artist. Loloma’s drawings echo his design esthetic for his jewelry, both of which referenced the contours of his Hopi homeland. Also, as a Hopi man, Loloma also was well acquainted with the weaving art that forms an important part of traditional dress and ceremony. Loloma jewelry and pottery, Hopi textiles and katsina carvings are included to add diversity and fully develop the theme of the drawings.

Come before Oct. 4 to see the lasting effects of Loloma’s life and work.

Supported by presenting sponsor Betty Kitchell and patron sponsor Georgia Loloma.

Bracelet, 1966, fossilized ivory, wood, turquoise, silver. Gift of Hal and Margaret Gates, 4782-1.
