Saturday Oct 28 & Sunday October 29 2017 at Houston Baptist University demos, slide lectures, intriguing q&a, panel discussion
Virgil Ortiz is a Pueblo artist, potter, fashion designer and photographer from Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico. Ortiz makes traditional Cochiti figurative pottery, experimental figurative pottery, traditional pottery vessels, and designer clothing. He is probably best known for his edgy pottery figures — his contemporary take on the traditional Cochiti pottery figures (monos) from the late 1800s. http://www.virgilortiz.com/about/
Lauren Gallespy makes sculptures, vessels and drawings about the sometimes violent, sometimes pleasurable, and almost always complex consequences that occur when bodies and objects come into contact with one another. http://www.laurengallaspy.com
