Photo-Historian Anne Wilkes Tucker Lecture
New Mexico Museum of Art
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Eminent photo-historian Anne Wilkes Tucker, curator emerita of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will give a lecture on Friday, Nov. 4, at 5:30 p.m., in the St. Francis Auditorium. Speaking in conjunction with the exhibition Transgressions and Amplifications: Mixed-media Photography of the 1960s and 1970s, Tucker will address the challenges of being female in the art world in the 1970s and discuss various image series and limited-edition books of artists Joan Lyons, Bea Nettles, and Marcia Resnick. Each woman used their own lives to tell very different stories of home turf, dreams, memories and urban fiction.  The lecture, “Not Women Artists, Artists,” also anticipates the fiftieth anniversary of Tucker’s groundbreaking 1973 publication The Woman’s Eye, a study of 100 photographs created by ten twentieth century women photographers. The book’s texts provide biographical information while raising questions including whether it is possible to locate gender in the authorship of a photograph and how the artists addressed prevailing challenges to establish their right to artistic ambition and careers. “It’s an interesting moment to revisit the book,” Tucker said. “Women are now well represented in the field as artists, curators, and historians, but history has shown that inclusiveness and parity are not guaranteed.”

Painted Reflections Pottery Demonstration by Lorraine Gala Lewis (Laguna / Hopi / Taos)
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Painted Reflections: Isomeric Design in Ancestral Pueblo Pottery

Lorraine Gala Lewis is a potter who is known for gaining  inspiration from Ancestral Pueblo motifs, shapes, and styles. In discussing her work with King Galleries, Lewis  says, “I delved into this and began collecting materials, visiting museums, and viewing private collections, focusing  on works dating from 850 ad to 1200 AD. Studying these  early art forms led to rediscovering our ancestral lands; these visits enhanced my creativity. The stories of our early paintings, petroglyphs and rock carvings made me pay closer attention to detail.

Free with museum admission.

This program is made possible through generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Magic of Mexico: The Joys, Celebrations and Rituals of Daily Life
Museum of International Folk Art
2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The Friends of Folk Art will have a travel photography slide presentation and lecture with David Saxe in the Vernick Auditorium. The photographs were made over several years during the events and activities surrounding the annual Pilgrimage of the Virgin of Guadalupe from Puebla to Mexico City, and local celebrations in smaller villages in the Sierra Norte. Although not entirely about the “Pilgrimage”, the photographs serve as a stepping stone to document the culture, rituals, magic, and daily life of the Mexican people. This will not be an anthropology lecture; it will be more about the process of making good photographs—by getting closer to your subject and sharing their experiences. Guadalupe only serves as a starting point in getting there.

Doors open at 2 pm and reception will follow.  Masks are preferred.

Registration is free for FOFA Members.  All participants must be current Friends of Folk Art (FOFA) members.  To join, please go to: https://www.museumfoundation.org/friends/friends-of-folk-art/

Hair Weaving Workshop with Karen Keenan
Museum of International Folk Art
2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Scandianavian hair weaving expert, teacher & scholar Karen Keenan presents a 2 hour workshop on the  Gimping Technique.

 One of 4 traditional sentimental era hairwork techniques, gimping was widely used to create handcrafted items such as brooches, gift cards, and for home adornments such as framed and hung hair wreaths. It and other hairwork techniques became less commonly made after the early 1900’s. Class participants will learn this technique by making multiple gimped strands with synthetic hair and wire. Shaped strands will then be attached to a card to keep or give to a friend or loved one.

To register for the free workshop email: leslie.fagre@state.nm.us

The workshop is restricted to 12 participants, but there will also be a waiting list if necessary.
