Jacob T. Frye and David Naranjo at Gallery Hózhó

February 3, 5:00 pm8:00 pm

We would like to welcome you to join us for our featured artists, Jacob T. Frye (Tesuque pueblo) and David Naranjo (Santa Clara Pueblo) at Gallery Hózhó Friday, February 3, 2023, from 5 pm to 8 pm. Each of our artists will exhibit new works and we could not be more excited. Stop by and say hello and meet the artists.

Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Jacob Thomas Frye is a fourth-generation potter and painter. Frye’s passion for art and learning began at five years old when he worked alongside his parents, both of whom are artists. He learned ceramics from his mother, a traditional potter from Tesuque Pueblo, and other media from his father, an artist from Ft. Collins, Colorado. Frye’s work reflects his inspirations, including Sikyatki-style by the Hopi potter Nampeyo, Black-onMaria Martinez from San Ildefonso Pueblo, and his great-grandfather Thomas Vigil “Pan Yo Pin,” who painted in watercolor paintings in the 1900s.

David Naranjo from the Pueblos of Santa Clara, San Juan, and Cochiti reinterprets historic pottery in two dimensions, expressing cultural symbolism through hardline abstraction. Since receiving his BFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts, he incorporates elements from Tewa patterns and designs as paintings and scarves, often executed in tactile materials such as silk and micaceous paint. For Naranjo, “Symbols and iconography depicted on pottery and embroidery are not only for ornate decorative purposes, but carry great symbolic significance and serve as visual representations of the landscape, natural world, and if used properly, for prayer.”
