Historic Southwest Pottery

The prehistoric Pueblo (also called Anasazi) were farmers who inhabited the Four Corners area of the Southwest and constructed some of the area's most spectacular surviving architecture. They also produced ceramics, with their early pottery created as woven containers reinforced by clay linings and moldings. Ceramic painting began in the 8th century, and the distinctive black-on-white designs were produced through the 14th century. Many of these pots have dynamic surfaces and carry cultural messages relating to social, ethnic or linguistic identity, as shown in pieces of hand-formed pottery on loan from the Orlando Museum of Art, the Cornell Fine Arts Museum as well as private collections, including the Collection of I.S.K. Reeves V and Sara W. Reeves.

Through August 31
North by Southwest: Native American Art From the Collection of I.S.K. Reeves and Sara W. Reeves

On display among the photographs and pottery are historic headdresses, beadwork, masks and silver jewelry belonging to tribes native to regions ranging from the Southwest to the Pacific Northwest. They comes to us from local collectors I.S.K. Reeves and Sara W. Reeves, who have contributed to previous exhibitions at the Mennello Museum; most recently, their art and artifacts from the Seminole Tribe of Florida were exhibited in 2013 as part of the “Art of the Everglades” series.

Through Sunday, Aug. 31
EnCHANTment

Inspired by the monastic life, artist Trés Taylor's mixed-media installation has at its core a small chapel constructed from carved barnwood and adorned with folk iconography depicting William Guadalupe a "rascal monk" character created by the artist ­ rendered in gold leaf and house paint. Taylor's work is also featured at the Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery in Sanford.


The "Art of the American West" exhibitions are sponsored by the City of Orlando and the Friends of The Mennello Museum of American Art with funding from Orange County Government through the Arts & Cultural Affairs Program.
