PIAM is Sharlot Hall Museum’s premier Native American art market, featuring Indigenous art, music, performances, demonstrations, and more. Over 100 top native artists present artwork in this juried show, showcasing art media ranging from oil painting and beadwork to pottery and weaving.

2022 Featured Artist: Marilyn Ray

Marilyn Ray is an Acoma Pueblo potter who is known for her whimsical storytellers and figurines. She was inspired by and mastered her art by the early teachings of her grandmother, Dolores S. Sanchez.  Marilyn’s studio and home are located at Acoma, Sky City, where she creates her beautiful pieces for everyone to enjoy. Her art has evolved throughout the years, and she is now known as one of the Master Potters of Acoma Pueblo.

Marilyn creates all her pieces with native Acoma clay that she mines on Acoma Pueblo lands, and paints them with natural pigments that she has collected throughout the Southwest. Marilyn and her sisters—Rebecca Lucario, Diane Lewis, Carolyn Concho, and Judy Lewis—also known as the “Lewis Sisters”, are all renowned potters for their own poised creations.

See Marilyn’s work for yourself at the 24th annual PIAM, September 17-18 at the Sharlot Hall Museum!
