The exhibition will highlight the work of seven contemporary native artists in honor of Indigenous Peoples Day. These include; Melanie Yazzie (Navajo); Joe Feddersen (Colville); Sara Siestreem (Coos/Lower Umpqua); John Hitchcock (Comanche); Duane Slick (Meskwaki); Jason Clark (Creek/Algonquin) and Molly Murphy-Adams (Oglala/Lakota).
Each of these artists represents a unique, beautiful and thought-provoking vision encompassing their cultural heritage and beliefs. The exhibition highlights a range of visual expressions, from large-scale woodcut statements about climate change to lithographs expressing protest, resistance and resilience. Other works in the exhibition explore myths and legends and still others investigate culture patterns of beadwork or basketry. Together these seven artists embody a wide array of style and vision.
