The UK Specialist in Contemporary Native American Indian Art and Jewellery
WE ARE NATIVE WOMEN
23rd March – 31st May 2017
‘We Are Native Women’ opens on Thursday March 23rd. This exhibition marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Pocahontas and celebrates all Native Women through a selection of powerful portraits by Indigenous artists.
“Native women, both past and present, have traditionally been respected and honoured within tribes not only for their roles as mothers and caregivers but also for their roles in positions of spiritual power, tribal relations, governance and even warfare. Indigenous women have been and are still today integral in advancing our culture, maintaining our traditions and strengthening our unity and resolve in the midst of great hardship.” Shan Goshorn
Artist Talk with Marla Allison
“I paint because I was passed down a gift from my grandfathers; I paint to continue what they started. My art is what lets me connect the past to my future. My paintings are based on the contemporary, which borrows from the past. I paint so I remember where I came from. I paint so others can remember where I come from. I paint to be remembered.” Marla Allison
Hear artist Marla Allison speak about her art, her life and her Pueblo culture on Thursday 23 March, 3pm-4pm at Friends Meeting House, 126 Hampton Road Bristol BS6 6JE. (cost £7.00)
