Ceramics and Textiles from the Southwest

Wednesday, January 29, 2020, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

oise natives Joan H. and John B. Carley spent twenty years wintering in the Southwest. Their love of the region and the various cultures represented there led them to begin collecting art by Native American artists. They eventually amassed a collection of more than sixty-five objects, including ceramics, sculptures, and textiles. In 2016, the Carleys generously gifted their collection to the Boise Art Museum. The collection consists of artworks by Apache, Choctaw, Hopi, Navajo, Pueblo, Tohono O'odham, and Wyandot artists. Highlights include an early twentieth-century jar from the Acoma Pueblo, a series of black vessels by acclaimed San Ildefonso Pueblo artist Maria Martinez, several storyteller figures from Cochiti Pueblo artists, and various intricately patterned Navajo wool rugs.
