Experience Art Like Never Before

Native American contemporary artists transform guestrooms into large scale installation works of art.

Nativo Lodge's new artist rooms offer our guests a very unique experience unlike any other hotel in Albuquerque, NM. Most people experience art in galleries or museum settings. Guests in these artists rooms get to sleep in a room that is an art piece in itself. These artist guest rooms are designed by emerging New Mexico Native American artists. The artwork in the rooms is deeply rooted in cultural traditions but is expressed in surprising ways. Take your hotel visit to another level by renting out one of our unique artist guest rooms.

Rezilience

  • The National Hispanic Cultural Center

REZILIENCE Indigenous Arts Experience is a profound, one-day exhibition that brings together Indigenous artists and creative professionals in diverse fields to promote Indigenous education, art, and culture.

An unprecedented movement in Indigenous communities has arisen. It moves people to recover cultural memory, celebrate survival, and honor our ancestors. This generation is building that movement and we rise like water to quench the thirst for stories, demanding to be felt through song, dance, paint on canvas, and pen upon paper.

This interactive experience will unite communities in an environment that bridges cultural knowledge with contemporary art-making processes. Activities will invite the public to demonstrate their passions and participate in hands-on activities while a multitude of Indigenous artists and art related professionals representing the United States, Canada, and Mexico share their talents, skills, and knowledge in eight creative arenas throughout the day. 

We come together to declare the rezilience that has always been within us.

Landscape Painting Workshop with Colorist Rhett Lynch

  • Coronado Historic Site

Rhett Lynch working on mural at Nativo Lodge, Albuquerque, NM

The Workshop

Nature offers everything needed to create strong, interesting and compelling, representational and abstract, landscape paintings. Using Nature as our source material, each artist will select the view of the Coronado Historic Site they wish to paint. The Sandia Mountains, Rio Grande Valley and mesas to the north provide beautiful inspiration any time of year. Rhett will guide each artist throughout the workshop, inviting the artist to "dig deep" as they create their own vision.

Agenda and Materials

9:00 AM - 4:00 PM - A delicious lunch and healthy snacks will be provided each day. Restroom facilities are on the premises

DAY ONE - The workshop begins with a short tour and talk on the history and culture of the historically rich site. Following the tour, Rhett will give a brief introduction covering: painting with your emotions using color, texture, and contrast; creating a strong composition; the creative act; and much more.

DAY TWO - We begin with a short painting demonstration followed by each artist choosing a new view of the landscape. A special challenge will be presented on day two, offering the participants the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone. The day will conclude with a critique and accomplishment ceremony.

Please bring any materials you would like to use, including but not limited to, paint, palette, canvas, brushes, water, painting medium, paper towels, field easel, materials for sketching, and a camera. A hat and sunscreen are recommended.

 

Location - Coronado Historic Site and the Ruins of Kuaua Pueblo

485 Kuaua Rd, Bernalillo, NM  87004

Coronado State Monument includes the partially reconstructed ruins of the ancient Pueblo of Kuaua, a Tiwa word for "evergreen." This monument is named for Francisco Vasquez de Coronado who is thought to have camped near this site with his soldiers in 1540 while searching for the fabled Cities of Gold.

The pueblo of Kuaua was occupied from 1300 AD and abandoned near the end of the 16th Century. An interpretive trail winds through the site leading to a reconstructed kiva, (ceremonial chamber) that was excavated at the site in the 1930s. Many decorated layers were revealed and are considered the finest example of pre-contact mural art in the United States. Inside this kiva you will find mural reproductions of Pueblo life depicting animal figures and human images.

The Kuaua Mural Hall houses 15 panels of the original murals excavated from of one of the rectangle kivas. Native American and Spanish Colonial artifacts are on display in the John Gaw Meem designed visitor center.

Cost - $250

Cancellations will be accepted up to one week prior to the workshop. Upon cancellation, 50% of cost ($125) will be returned. No refund for cancellations received later than midnight, March 25. You have the option to apply the full value to the next workshop this spring. If the workshop is cancelled by us for any reason, you will receive a 100% refund. All cancellations must be received via email at carol@rhettlynch.com.

The workshop is limited to only ten students!

The exhibition features works on paper by 36 contemporary Native American artists. Curated by Suzanne Fricke and Beverly Morris, the project was originally organized with the Institute of American Indian Arts to celebrate 2012 as the official year of Russian-American friendship. The American Consulate sponsored the show at the Ekaterinburg Museum of Fine Arts in Russia. Each piece was chosen to reflect the complexity and richness of modern Native life. The artists reflect the diversity in tribal affiliation, geographic location, gender and age, and share an intricate vision of life lived in different worlds, from the long traditions of their specific tribes to the politics and pop of the world at large. The continued vitality and relevance of Native artists to the art world in general speaks to the strength of Native cultures, not only for their ability to survive but to thrive, and their ability to create and recreate in the face of many challenges.
