MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA
FROM THE MUSEUM STORE
Jacquard Spa Towel with Pendleton Woolen Mills’s popular 1923 Harding pattern, is a luxury your mom will love for the beach, hot tub or pool. 40" x 70", 100% cotton, and machine washable, these towels are made following environmentally-friendly standards and under safe, socially responsible working conditions. $49.50

A PATTERN WITH HISTORY.
A GIFT FOR A FIRST LADY.
In 1923, President Warren G. Harding and his wife visited the Pacific Northwest to dedicate part of the old Oregon Trail. A presidential visit this far west was an occasion. The area’s tribal dignitaries, chiefs of the Cayuse and Umatilla tribes, asked Pendleton Woolen Mills to create a unique blanket as a special gift to the First Lady, Florence Harding.

The weavers modified a Chief Joseph pattern and produced a fringed shawl in shades of white, tan, yellow and red. Mrs. Harding graciously accepted the blanket, and by all accounts was delighted with her so-very-western gift.

What came to be known as the Harding pattern has been a steady part of the Pendleton line since the 1920s. SOURCE: https://blog.pendleton-usa.com/2011/09/16/harding-a-pattern-through-time/

"From the Puyê petroglyphs to the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, New Mexico’s art has long intersected with history. 'A Past Rediscovered: Highlights from the Palace of the Governors' gathers images from the dawn of photography, historic retablos and bultos, beaded flapper dresses and a letter from Billy the Kid on loan from both the Palace and the New Mexico History Museum at the Albuquerque Museum through Oct. 20."

Read more about it in this article by Kathaleen Roberts from Sunday's Albuquerque Journal. Then come see the exhibit for yourself as it opens this weekend.

Unfolding Tradition: Works on Paper by Japanese Artists in the Collection

Nature and the human form have long been important subjects in Japanese art. "Unfolding Tradition" features 19th-century woodblock prints from the Edo period alongside contemporary works through which artists both engage with and redefine traditional Japanese subjects, techniques, and approaches to making art. The contemporary artists reflect on the aesthetics, history, and society of Japan but they also represent the meeting of East and West and some venture into making new more abstract forms of art.
