We are excited to highlight contemporary indigenous North American art with Reclamations, showing November 15 through January 17 at Art Ventures@Faulkner Performing Arts Center Gallery in Fayetteville.
The pieces that remain through trauma and ravage are powerful cultural DNA. They take shape in contemporary reflections that mark survival and beauty. Artists in this exhibition are Native peoples from the Northwest Arkansas region – Roy Boney (Cherokee), Bobby Martin (Muskogee – Creek), Lauren Reed (Choctaw – Cherokee) , Erin Shaw (Chickasaw – Choctaw), and Kindra Swafford (Cherokee).
Also included in Reclamations is José “Pepo” Toledo from the Central American city just south of Mexico – Guatemala City, Guatemala.
The Opening Reception for Reclamations is Friday, November 15, from 6-7pm at the Faulkner Center. This reception is free and open to the public. All are welcome.
Immediately following the reception, the Faulkner Center will be presenting the Martha Redbone Roots Project: The Garden of Love-Songs of William Blake from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. For more information on this performance and to get tickets, visit the Faulkner Performing Arts Center website.
