Saturday, February 10th Saturday, February 17th
Artist Talk: 11:00 am
Born in Peru, Lucho’s interest in clay and pottery art came at the early age of 10. His extensive knowledge and practice in pottery art blends ancient technologies, techniques, and motifs from the Chavín, Moche, Nazca, and Paracas Indigenous Peoples of South America with contemporary ceramic art traditions of Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico. Vessel forms and finishes encapsulate both the ancient and contemporary, for example his rolled coil, stone burnishing, and 24 karat gold and platinum luster appliqué techniques. In addition to creating stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces, Lucho’s work essentially reconnects contemporary Indigenous artists of the Americas, hence the title of his talk.
Lucho will be at Amerind to discuss his work and demonstrate his pottery making techniques.
Lucho’s talk will be at 11:00 am
This event is included with regular Museum admission.
Lucho Soler Fine Pottery Art exhibit will be on display in the Amerind Gallery through June 2024.
Lucho has made many of the pieces in this exhibit available for sale, although the works must remain until the exhibit ends in June 2024. To inquire about purchasing work from this exhibit please contact the Museum Store at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
