Contemporary Art in Native America: Deep Roots
is a featured exhibition for August highlighting artists. Roy Boney, Leah Cowden, Jeff Edwards, Wanbli Gamache
and Bobby C. Martin
as they express the impact of life through their art, and the ownership of intellectual cross-currents that inform the contemporary art space within which they reside. Their works signify experiences at the root of their cultural survival to these times. These artists come from a background of deep participation as citizens of the Cherokee Nation, Cherokee Nation card holder, or identifying in the Indigenous diaspora because of movements and mixture. This exhibition is supported by the Walmart Foundation.
We depend on the support of patrons, donors and volunteers to bring exciting exhibitions, engaging collaborations, artist talks (Salon Sundays), and community groups into the Gallery where a special view of our quality of life adds an uplifting dimension to every individual. As we strive to normalize public engagement in the arts as a routine practice, we believe that a sense of pride, belonging and ownership is created within the community, and we get closer to achieving our vision.
