La Lucha en Barro: The Pottery of Mata Ortiz - Beauty and Survival
On view at the Rosenberg Library, Level 2, September 15 - December 17, 2004
La Lucha en Barro: Mata Ortiz The Pottery of Mata Ortiz: "The Mata Ortiz area was home to the Casas Grandes civilization, Paquime, from the eleventh through the fourteenth centuries. The highest artistic expression to be achieved by the artisans of Paquime, jewelry aside, was their polychrome (several colors) ceramics. Today, the archeological site of Paquime, 18 miles north of Mata Ortiz, continues to influence the pottery making process."

"The selection of ceramic pieces on exhibition is work created in collaboration: a family working together as husband and wife, and sometimes three generations of family members together in the pottery making process. They are artists recognized for creating high quality, beautiful ollas, while transforming their family's economy amidst a contemporary ceramics renaissance." --from the exhibition statement
