Ends Sunday, Jan. 12
When you think of Southwestern Native American pottery and sculpture, you might think of the other-worldly vessels of Maria Martinez, employing San Ildefonso Pueblo traditional imagery and patterns onto glossy, fired earthenware. Navajo artist Christine Nofchissey McHorse took the lustrous black pottery into new spaces of design, turning mica-rich clay from New Mexico’s riverbeds into thrilling work that dazzles in light. The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art will close its exhibit Dark Light: The Micaceous Ceramics of Christine Nofchissey McHorse, Sunday, Jan. 12. For those who saw the exhibit when it opened back in September, a return visit will be worth the look. For those who have yet to visit, Dark Light is a must-see. You’ll find the museum at 555 Elm Ave., on the University of Oklahoma campus in Norman. For more, visit www.ou.edu/ffjma.
