Opening Reception: Indigenous Pottery and Western Art Come Together

April 11, 6:00 pm8:00 pm

Indigenous Pottery and Western Art Come Together at King Galleries in Scottsdale

Two solo exhibitions of Indigenous pottery, one by Dine’ artist Daniel Begay and the other by Santa Clara potter Susan Folwell, will be held in conjunction with a show of new paintings by Western artist Andrew Roda at King Galleries in Scottsdale Thursday, April 11 from 7 to 9 pm on Main Street in Old Town.

About the artists:

Daniel Begay is one of several gallery artists who are redefining contemporary Navajo pottery and making it relevant once again. Begay learned to make pottery from his father Harrison Begay Jr. and his mother, Marie John. Begay grew up in Santa Clara pueblo, which inspired him to combine the two cultures in his work. Each piece is coil-built, deeply carved, stone polished, and traditionally fired.

Susan Folwell is from a long line of Santa Clara potters and is one of the leading innovators in the world of Pueblo pottery. This new exhibition is titled Roads Well-Traveled: Route 66 and will include twelve new pieces inspired by the legendary thoroughfare to the West.

Andrew Roda is one of a group of younger artists changing the face and nature of Western art. While his work has been described as contemporary Western still life, he has a particular affinity for painting saddles and boots because of their unique juxtaposition of form and function. His new collection of work for this show will include some of his largest paintings to date.
