Joe and Althea Cajero discuss their love of art, being and artist and being in love with another artist.

Meet one of New Mexico’s most dynamic and creative couples: Joe and Althea Cajero. They will share their unique story and perspective on their art – the love they have for their art and working as an artist couple. Joe Cajero is an award-winning sculptor from Jemez Pueblo who works in clay and bronze. Althea Cajero is a renowned jewelry artist from Santo Domingo and Acoma Pueblos known for her cuttlefish cast contemporary jewelry. In 2014 the Cajeros received the prestigious Living Treasure Award from the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture during its annual Native Treasures Arts Festival. Joe says, “We’re helping each other and supporting each other to push the envelope of our work even further…Working together in a studio is a lot like being in a relationship. Sometimes you know when to say something and sometimes you know when to not say anything at all.” Underlying it all is their love for each other and for art. Joe says working together as a couple “has made us both happier people.” Free and open to the public. The Counter-Narrative is a onthly lecture series at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center that presents an Indigenous perspective on selected topics and subjects.
