Ramona Sakiestewa: Light Echo A
2017, acrylic, graphite, and 23-carat gold leaf on panel
Tai Modern, 1601 Paseo de Peralta, 505-984-1387 In her fifth solo exhibition at Tai Modern, multimedia artist Ramona Sakiestewa presents a series of recent works that developed out of her involvement with the Chaco Heritage Project, a juried art residency organized by the University of New Mexico’s Maxwell Museum of Anthropology. The exhibition, Light Echoes, includes pieces inspired by the architecture and beauty of Chaco Canyon and its objects and ruins — works that reflect the Chacoan peoples’ interest in celestial patterns. Her Raven series developed from memories of her time at Chaco. The show opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Aug. 11; an artist talk takes place at the gallery at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 12.
