Generations in Modern Pueblo Painting

at Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art
 
 

“Generations in Modern Pueblo Painting: The Art of Tonita Peña and Joe Herrera” is the first of its kind: a large-scale, high-quality, scholarly exhibition of three generations of modern Pueblo painting. The exhibition is curated by W. Jackson Rushing III, the Eugene B. Adkins Presidential Professor of Art History and Mary Lou Milner Carver Chair in Native American Art, OU School of Visual Arts.

“Generations in Modern Pueblo Painting” spans 1915 to the late 1980s. In addition to Tonita Peña (San Ildefonso/Cochiti) and her son, Joe Herrera (Cochiti), other artists featured include Julian Martinez and his grandson Tony Da (San Ildefonso); Pablita Velarde and her daughter Helen Hardin (Santa Clara); in addition to teachers and mentors, such as Romando Vigil (San Ildefonso) and Geronimo Montoya (San Juan); as well as younger artists inspired by Herrera, such as Michael Kabotie (Hopi); Martinez’s nephew, Gilbert Atencio (San Ildefonso); and Charles Lovato (Kewa Pueblo).
