The Prehistoric Heritage of Modern Mata Ortiz Pottery @ Sedona Heritage Museum
Mar 27 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
     Paquimé, Chihuahua, Mexico is the most important archaeological site in the American Southwest and northern Mexico.  Traders from this ancient city greatly influenced the Anasazi, Hohokam, and Mogollon cultures of the Southwest. Pottery from this site was the inspiration for modern Mata Ortiz ceramics.  John Bezy, who has worked with the potters of Mata Ortiz for nearly 30 years, will discuss the archaeology of Paquime and the evolution of today’s world-class pottery.
     Master artist Oralia Lopez will demonstrate how the pottery is painted.
     A good selection of Mata Ortiz pottery will be available for purchase at Mata Ortiz prices. Mata Ortiz4

Lions (& Rattlers & Dragons & Longhorns) & Bears – Oh My! @ Sedona Heritage Museum
Apr 1 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

“And so, in his quest for goals or gold, a man may lie to his friends, and work out ways to fool the law, and tie up all loose ends. And he may mask illicit tasks, and even face down danger. But in spite of his brain, and his place in the food chain…there’s no escaping nature.”

An award-winning actor, playwright, and historian, Michael Peach is especially good at bringing to life history and his subjects. But, he isn’t afraid to spin some tall tales, too.

This new show focuses on nature and animal friends (or foes) of the southwest. “…and according to this plan, God meant the hand of man to tame the wild and cultivate dominion. So the higher up, the gladder, here on evolution’s ladder. But maybe that’s a matter of opinion.”
