Main Galleries – "What I kept" [event page] [installation views] [reception March 20, 5-7:30pm]  

When we came to the U.S., we were allowed only two suitcases, and even though I didn't have the space for it, I had to bring this teddy bear (nounours in French).  It has now been in my closet for nine years, and I almost forgot about it.  When I took it out, all my childhood memories came back, and I am so glad it made the trip with me.  My nounours is my time capsule, and I am the only one who knows what's inside. Gaelle Lespinasse-Llambi, born in Fr

Gallery B – "Beth Van Hoesen" [event page] [installation views]

One of the most important artists/print-makers of her generation, this selection of Beth Van Hoesen’s work (1926-2010) from AMUM’s collection is distinctive for the quiet poignancy and compelling charm in studies and finished work of everyday objects, animals and people.

CASEWORKS – "Artifacts from AMUM's Permanent Collection" [more here]

Pottery Water Jar or “Ula”   (ca. 1920 - 1940), Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico, Coiled ceramic, slip-painted design, Mr. and Mrs. Berry B. Brooks Collection, 1984.1.200

Manufacturing pottery is a tradition that has been passed down through generations of the Acoma people. The pots are known for their very thin walls, beautiful geometric designs and black-white-red slip paintings. This jar features a traditional design and shape though its small size indicates that it may have been made for sale to tourists.
