NAMPEYO FAMILY RETROSPECTIVE: 1885–2019 Steve Elmore Fine Art 839 Paseo de Peralta August 9–October 1 Reception August 9, 5–7 pm


Nampeyo (Hopi-Tewa) (1859–1942) was a celebrated potter who used ancient firing techniques and who revived “Old Hopi” designs found on 15th-century pottery shards. This exhibition features ceramics by Nampeyo and many of her descendants, including her daughters, Nellie Douma Nampeyo, Annie Healing Nampeyo, and Fannie Nampeyo, and her granddaughters, Rachel Namingha Nampeyo, Daisy Hooee Nampeyo, and Juanita Healing. Contemporary members of the Nampeyo family, including three daughters of Priscilla Namingha Nampeyo (1924–2008), Nampeyo’s great-granddaughter, will be present with their work. The show includes pottery spanning over 130 years, from 1885–2019, showcasing the powerful and long-lasting influence of the renowned artist’s Sikyátki revival art movement.—Sarah Eddy
