In his Oral History, Lea identifies an important personal inspiration, the 12th Century school of landscapes. He explains, “There was a school – I think it was the late Sung, Chinese – where there was the sky and earth and man. And there had to be evidence of man to give sky and earth its essential meaning.” Join Dr. Melissa Warak, UTEP associate professor of art history, at her presentation about the connections that span nine centuries. Then Hector Gallegos and Manolo Rodriguez, award-winning Mata Ortiz potters whose families immigrated to Mexico from China, will demonstrate their pottery-making skills and share their Chinese-Mexican heritage during an Asian-themed reception.

The award-winning potters will be selling their pots at great prices at the day of the event
