Native culture and natural history of the Southwest are embodied in Molly Heizer's ceramic totems, kachinas and animals.
Native and Natural. On Friday, August 18th, 2017, Canyon Road Contemporary Art will celebrate 21 years with artist Molly Heizer and present her ceramic kachinas, animals and totems. The Artist’s opening reception will be from 5:00pm - 7:00pm. The exhibit will run through August 27th, 2017. A memorable demonstration by the Artist of her clay modeling technique will take place on Thursday, August 17th, from 11am – 3pm.
Each year, Heizer enthusiasts await her newest works, which traditionally arrive to Canyon Road Contemporary during the week of Indian Market in Santa Fe. Each year’s selections foster new collectors of her works, which are at once whimsical and yet steeped in the teachings of Hopi culture and spiritual practices. These works of Folk Art are to be enjoyed at many levels as they teach us to appreciate and enjoy in a way that only they can.
Molly Heizer’s ultimate path to her art integrated different interests in her life’s pursuit. She studied archeology, took ceramic classes and was on a ski patrol. Her love of culture, nature and art has graced us with almost three decades of one-of-a-kind sculptural works. Canyon Road Contemporary Art is proud to host this one-artist exhibition. Molly Heizer’s works are collected internationally.
