Cara Romero’s image of Santa Clara Pueblo potter Kaa Folwell demanded a particular sort of attention in the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s recent, revelatory exhibition, “Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists.” Meta and mythic, yet wholly contemporary, the photo captured Folwell in mid-hair toss, her body painted with the textural design of a Mesa Verde clay pot. In her first solo exhibition in Minneapolis, Romero, a Chemehuevi artist, presents us with more of her singular images in which modern culture and Native American traditions meld in diverse and powerfully lived realities.
