Joe Maktima, Hopi/Laguna, is currently showing his work at the Seattle Grind, located at 106 E Second St. in Winslow. The show opened on Friday Jan. 7. Refreshments were served and live music enhanced the atmosphere. It was a great opportunity to meet and greet the artist and get answers about his background, future plans and the current art displayed. Maktima comes from three generations of Hopi-Laguna artists being influenced at an early age by those around him. He began his studies in 1982 at the Institute for Indian Artists in Santa Fe, N.M. Maktima has continued his studies since that time and focuses his talents in Abstract Expressionism with undercurrents of Hopi traditional designs. He works in oils, acrylic and mixed media, primarily in flat art but also does some 3-dimensional pieces. Maktima can be contacted at The Parrotfeather Studio located at 7350 Larson Lane in Flagstaff, or call (928) 522-0162.
