CALGARY – Arts Commons Presents once again welcomes Making Treaty 7 into the +15 galleries with their touring art collection, the 2nd Annual Indigenous Art Exhibition which includes over 90 works of art by 17 carvers, beaders, photographers, printmakers, painters, and mixed media artists running October 1, 2019 – January 21, 2020 in the +15 gallery spaces.
The Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society's 2nd Annual Indigenous Art Exhibition focuses on the creative spirit and voices of Indigenous artists (First Nations, Metis, and Inuit). By showcasing work by Indigenous artists, we celebrate the multilayered cultural mosaic of the many diverse communities they represent and the richness of our collective history.
“Indigenous art is a great cultural gift, one to be recognized, to be seen, to be appreciated, to be learned from, to be enriched by,” says Miriam Fabijan, Making Treaty 7's Artist and Outreach Coordinator as well as curator of this special project. “They provide an understanding and a connection to the land, and first peoples, that can only be expressed by those with a long history with it.”
Artists featured include:
Autumn Whiteway, Stephanie One Spot, Rick Wolcott, Mackenzie Brown, Michelle Wiebe, Jackson Eiteneier , Keegan Starlight, Candace Gladue - Áísínai'pi , Nathan Meguinis, Hali Heavy Shield, Tania Big Plume, Sheila Toderian, Michelle Soto, Tamara Eaker, Priscilla Boulay, Theresa Beebe, and Christopher Big Plume.
