Santa Fe’s beloved artist Judy Tuwaletstiwa returns to Pie Projects for a solo exhibition. She sees her art as an act of reparation. This show will feature new works, including exquisite kiln-fired glass on canvas and mixed media creations inspired by her forthcoming children’s book Frog Dreaming.
“First, we know sound, the rhythmic beating of our mother’s heart. Second, we know touch, the texture of our mother’s skin. Then we know light.
During the day, we go about with eyes open. During the night, we go about with eyes closed. We travel long distances on our Night Journeys.” – Judy Tuwaletstiwa
