Painted Reflections Pottery Demonstration by Santiago Romero (Cochiti/Taos/Santa Ana)

Painted Reflections: Isomeric Design in Ancestral Pueblo Pottery

1:00 pm through 3:00 pm

Santiago Romero was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico but grew up in Los Angeles and later on here in New Mexico. He is from Cochiti Pueblo, Taos Pueblo and Santa Ana Pueblo. His education decision to take Environmental Studies was from a recommendation from his stepmother Roxanne Swentzell but certainly he has had many influences from his father Diego, and uncle Mateo Romero. Santi, as he is known as, says, “The true force behind my artwork lies within my great-grandmother Teresita Romero. I am blessed to have her hand on my shoulder as I continue on this journey”. Santi’s work is juxtaposed between these worlds which is evident in his ceramic work bringing the ancestral methods and materials into the present.

Museum of Indian Arts and Culture Lobby Free with msueum admission.
