Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
"I'm interested in ideas of socially-constructed identity and value. My research explores contemporary popular culture and how we perceive mass media influences propagating consumption. Drawing from media imagery – especially that related to gender, beauty, and material desire – my work aims to create a feeling of cognitive dissonance. Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers... is a direct response to the current obsession with extravagance and the space inhabited by a simultaneous feeling of distaste and desire. The pieces reference contemporary fashion trends capitalizing on the political climate and eagerness for social change. The work is all hand-built ceramic and mixed media, incorporating textiles, faux fur, beading and other adornment." – Jessika Edgar

Him Old Ruins: Edgar Lee Hewett and the Archaeology of Pueblo Painting
During the early 1900s, he established a school and two major museums in Santa Fe, today known as the School for Advanced Research, the Museum of New Mexico, and the New Mexico Museum of Art. In addition to training the first generation of southwestern archaeologists, he provided jobs and studio space for Santa Fe’s first resident artists and played a key role in the development of Pueblo painting. He provided support for young Pueblo artists such as Fred Kabotie, and hosted the world’s first exhibition of Pueblo watercolor painting. His role in establishing the Southwest Indian Fair, precursor to today’s Santa Fe Indian Market, will be discussed, and the artists’ relationship with Hewett will be examined.
