Riassunto: Saints of the Pueblos is an exploration of the connections between Hispanic and Pueblo cultures ? delving into the Hispanic devotional images of saints and Pueblo pottery traditions. Each of the nineteen active pueblos is represented with a retablo created by Charlie Carrillo of its patron saint in the style of that pueblo. Four additional ?lost? pueblos are also represented. Although Charlie Carrillo is known for his santos of New Mexico, he has done extensive research into the archaeology and pottery traditions of the region. Charlie?s interests in santos and pottery are the genesis of this book and the exhibit of the same name at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque. This book proves that these cultures are indeed intertwined. Each image is supported by research about the history of the mission church, the patron saint, and the historic pottery of that pueblo. Historic photographs are included of the Spanish missions at each pueblo. This collection of retablos and pottery is supported with essays ? by Archbishop Michael Sheehan, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center Director Ron Solimon, and pueblo historian Joe Sando ? which explore the love of the art and these cultures.
L'autore: Dr. Charles M. Carrillo is a scholar, teacher, and lecturer, as well as an artist. He has been a participant at Spanish Market in Santa Fe for over twenty years and has won numerous awards. His work is exhibited in many major museums including The Heard Museum, Denver Art Museum, Regis University, Albuquerque Museum, Museum of Spanish Colonial Art, and the Smithsonian. He is the author of Hispanic New Mexican Pottery (1996) and A Tapestry of Kinship (co-authored with José Antonio Esquibel, 2004); he has also written many articles on New Mexico art and culture. Carrillo earned his doctorate in anthropology from the University of New Mexico and is currently an Adjunct Professor in the University of New Mexico?s Religious Studies Program. A book on Carrillo and his art, Charlie Carrillo: Tradition & Soul, was published by LPD Press in 1994. The first Santos of the Pueblos exhibit at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in 2003 was so popular that an expanded version of the show was installed in its new gallery in 2004. Carrillo lives in Santa Fe with his wife Debbie, who is an award-winning potter, and their two children, Estrellita and Roán, who have also won awards for their santos.
