Join us for a talk and discussion about Romero’s paintings, which reflect a pattern of evolution and change through powerful and imposing swirling gestural paint marks and drips. Overall, Romero’s work evokes a rhythmic, hypnotic, trancelike feeling which is referential to the metaphysical space of the Pueblo and the dance itself. Represented by Blue Rain Gallery, Romero’s work is in the collection of the Denver Art Museum, Smithsonian NMAI, and the School for Advanced Research.
Join us for a talk and discussion about Luger’s work, which combines critical cultural analysis with dedication and respect for the diverse materials, environments, and communities he engages. Known for his ceramic innovations, he also tells stories using fiber, steel, cut-paper, video, sound, performance, monumental sculpture, land art installation, and social collaboration. Luger’s work is in the collection of the Denver Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (Santa Fe), among others.
