Turquoise Tortoise Gallery
Treasures of The Mummy’s Bundle Trunk Show
Visitors and residents of our Southwest region may have seen images of black and white striped “koshares,” sacred clown figures in Puebloan cultures, and not firmly understood what they are. If that’s the case, a visit to Turquoise Tortoise Gallery during September’s “1st Friday” gives visitors the opportunity to meet clay artist Randall Chitto who captures all their glory in his figures as “Randall Chitto: Sacred Clowns” opens.
