Artist Spotlight on Marvin & Frances Martinez!

Marvin Martinez was born into San Ildefonso Pueblo on September 9, 1964, son of Viola Sunset Cruz, grandson of Adam and Santana Martinez, great-grandson of Maria Martinez. Marvin has said he learned a lot about life from his great-grandmother but as it was his grandparents who raised him, he learned about pottery making from them. Today he and his wife Frances carry on the black-on-black tradition of the Martinez family. Marvin and Frances work in the traditional matte black-on-black designs of his grandparents and great-grandparents. Using clay gathered from pueblo land and hand-processed at home, they then hand-coil their pots, stone polish them, decorate them with designs in bee-weed and fire their pots outdoors.

Marvin is known for his depictions of the Avanyu, the water serpent, which his great-grandfather Julian Martinez made famous. He occasionally varies by adding rain coming down from the clouds in the Avanyu design, as well as altering the teeth of the serpent.

You can purchase these pieces and more online at our Museum of New Mexico Foundation Shops

Last month, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture co-hosted a virtual seminar titled “Moquis and Kastiilam: Hopis, Spaniards and the Trauma of History.” This event highlights a collaboration between the University of Arizona and the Hopi Tribe as part of the Hopi History Project.

In this recording, Jeremy Garcia, Stewart B. Koyiyumptewa and Tom Sheridan discuss the Hopi History Project and the effort to recover the Hopi narrative about their three centuries of conflict with the Spanish Empire, the experience of a twenty-year endeavor, and the opportunities for the future.

A few videos of the works available at the auction🙏🏽 Dante Biss-Grayson
I just read that your online auction will only split money made with the Native artists represented in the auction. Given how hard the Native population in this state have been hit by Covid, I would have hoped this event could be a fundraiser for their benefit...
Ditto, ditto, DITTO !
Important collections & worthwhile organization. Albeit that like Williamsburg, VA the city itself is an imaginary & thus in reality a fundamentally false & phoney represtation.
Good evening folks
