Images from the 2019 ASNM Annual Meeting

2019-04-27 MM ASNM banquetAllow us a bit of self-congratulation: We of the GCAS were told by many attendees that our hosting of the 2019 ASNM Annual Meeting on April 26 through 28 was a success and that a fine time was had by all. One individual remarked, "...The venue, and papers were both above average by quite a lot. All of the papers were great!" Kudos, then, to all the presenters, and for the GCAS Program Committee for working so hard to gather together such a fine lineup!

2019-04-27 MM ASNM Banquet table decorationsThe Saturday, April 27 banquet was (as is typical for such events) an excellent opportunity for networking and general schmoozing. Professional and avocational archaeologists rubbed elbows at tables decorated with potted seedlings of heirloom varieties of corn, beans, and squash - a combination known as the “three sisters” because they thrive together, interplanted, much like three inseparable sisters.

2019-04-27 MM ASNM - Pat Gilman and Gendron artOur keynote Bandelier speaker was Professor Emerita Patricia A. Gilman of the University of Oklahoma, one of the most informative and engaging specialists on Mimbres-Mogollon culture you can find. In gratitude for the time she took to be the featured speaker at the ASNM meeting, and in appreciation for her lifetime's devotion to archaeology of the US Southwest, we of the GCAS presented her with a framed watercolor, "Rabbit Moon," painted by local artist and GCAS member/officer Marilyn Gendron.

Marilyn's art deserves special attention, so we'll talk more about it a few days from now in the next post...
