Movie Screening

Amerind and The Loft Cinema Present: Smoke Signals

Saturday, August 31, 2019, 7:00 pm

Free Event

smoke signals with logos

Smoke Signals follows Victor and Thomas-Builds-the-Fire, two young Idaho men with wildly different memories of one Arnold Joseph, a former resident of their Idaho reservation who split years before and has just died in Phoenix. Arnold’s popular, athletic son, Victor, remembers him best as an alcoholic, occasionally abusive father, who drove off one day and never came back. By contrast, the highly-quirky, always-talking Thomas Builds-the-Fire, whom Arnold had saved from certain death years earlier, has chosen to romanticize the man’s life and deeds in a way that drives Victor crazy. However, circumstances bring this odd couple together in a funny and funky road trip to Phoenix to retrieve Arnold’s ashes.

This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Event Schedule

4:00 pm—5:00 pm: Gallery Talk with Dr.  John Schaefer

4:00 pm-8:30 pm: Buy dinner from the Baily’s BBQ & Bistro food truck

Encaustic Painting Workshop with Maria Arvayo (Pascua Yaqui)

Cloud Bloom by Maria Arvayo

This two-day workshop provides an introduction to encaustic painting and is open to beginners as well those with some experience. We’ll take a brief look at the history of this ancient painting medium, as well as materials, supplies, tools, and some fun techniques. The term encaustic comes from the Greek word “to burn in.” Encaustic painting utilizes pigmented beeswax. Paint needs to be heated into a liquid to be applied to the surface, the surface is then reheated to fuse the paint. The quality of the surface has a unique sheen and depth. Aside from painting this medium lends itself well to mixed media, collage and even sculptural techniques.

Maria Arvayo is a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. She's been working in encaustic for over 15 years and is a Tucson artist whose work focuses on images of the southwest and other observations from life. Maria works in encaustic and other painting media, teaches encaustic classes and exhibits locally.

Cost without accommodations: $250 per person for members or $275 for nonmembers (includes supplies and lunches)

To register call Amerind at 520.586.3666 or email amerind@amerind.org.

Spider Woman’s Children: Navajo Weavers Today

Book Signing with Barbara Teller Ornelas (Diné)

October 12, 2019, 11:00 am

ornelas book signing

Navajo rugs set the gold standard for handwoven textiles in the U.S. But what about the people who create these treasures? Spider Woman’s Children is the inside story, told by two women who are both deeply embedded in their own culture and considered among the very most skillful and artistic of Navajo weavers today. Barbara Teller Ornelas is a fifth-generation weaver who grew up at the fabled Two Grey Hills trading post. Her family and clan connections give her rare insight, as this volume takes readers into traditional hogans, remote trading posts, reservation housing neighborhoods, and urban apartments to meet weavers who follow the paths of their ancestors, who innovate with new designs and techniques, and who uphold time-honored standards of excellence. Throughout the text are beautifully depicted examples of the finest, most mindful weaving this rich tradition has to offer. Join Barbara at Amerind as she talks about and signs her book.

Capturing Sunlight: Images from the Southwest with Maria Arvayo (Pascua Yaqui)

November 9, 2019
, 1:00pm

Tall Grass

Tall Grass by Maria Arvayo

In her own words: My work focuses on depicting the Sonoran landscape. I attempt to capture the quality of light, the warmth and the distinct beauty. I work in a wide variety of media, but the majority of my work is in oil, acrylic, pastel, and encaustic. My work is inspired by the natural world. Some pieces, although they may seem abstract, are usually objects that by their own nature are abstract. Through my images I hope to express and share the beauty that I see around us.

Organic Materials in Jewelry Metalsmithing with Rykelle Kemp (Choctaw, Euchee-Muscogee Creek, and Diné)

Saturday, November 16, 2019, 9:00 am-3:00 pm

rykelle kemp

In this one-day workshop Rykelle Kemp will be discuss how she uses organic materials and applies it to her silversmithing pieces. You will be working hands-on with materials such as black abalone shell and mother of pearl while Rykelle shares how she has developed a way to apply metal to shell by using a “cold connection” technique. The second half of the workshop will explore the different methods of texturing metal with a rolling mill. Textured metal gives your jewelry pieces contrast, depth and can be used as your main design or the background to a more complex piece. You will play with organic materials, fabrics, found objects and can even create your own design cutouts. You will then shape, cut out, and drill to either add to your shell designs made in the first half of the workshop or to save for a future project.

Cost: $160 for members or $185 for nonmembers (includes supplies and lunch)

To register call Amerind at 520.586.3666 or email amerind@amerind.org.
