Pottery and printmaking with rich, colorful glazes reminiscent of the Southwest landscape. Runs through 8/01.


What began with a blind date has become a lifetime of collaboration and passion for the arts. Collective Wisdom brings together the collective work of Mary and Karl Hofmann’s pottery and printmaking as well as their individual expression in paintings. Wild Hearts Gallery is inviting the public to attend the opening reception for the Hofmanns on Saturday, July 14, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Karl and Mary have been making their pottery with rich, colorful glazes reminiscent of the Southwest landscape for more than forty years. Using influences from Meissen porcelain and folk pottery to the wedging and throwing techniques Karl observed in Japan, together they make round and rectangular plates of all sizes, platters, bowls, teapots and more. Accomplished painters as well, they will have paintings and prints (linocuts) of bears and Southwest landscapes. Light refreshments will be served and many of the artists in the gallery will be there to discuss their artwork. Wild Hearts Gallery is located in Placitas, at the Homestead Village, 221-B State Highway 165, 2 ½ miles from I-25.

Wild Hearts Gallery is open Tuesday-Friday 11 am to 5 pm; Saturday-Sunday 10 am to 3 pm.
