25 years Rainmaker Gallery Bristol

This year 2016 we celebrate the twenty fifth anniversary of the launch of Rainmaker. It all began with a desire to share the rich diversity of Native American cultures and extend public awareness far beyond the ubiquitous narrow stereotype. Thanks to the endless talent emerging from Indian Country during the last 25 years we have been able to exhibit thousands of extraordinary works of art, host dozens of artists, nurture numerous collectors, and adorn innumerable people with exquisite jewellery.

To mark this milestone I am delighted to announce that we have planned a packed year of exhibitions, events and collaborations. The highlights will be three exciting art shows:

The spring photography exhibition ‘STILL‘ runs from 15th March to 28th May 2016, with a special artist’s reception on Thursday 21st April attended by fine art photographer Cara Romero and her husband, the celebrated Cochiti Pueblo potter Diego Romero.

In June 2016 we welcome an exciting young emerging artist from the Crow Nation, Del Curfman. Del will be visiting Bristol for the opening of his first solo exhibition which will be on show throughout the summer.

For September, October and November 2016 we are planning a group show in celebration of our animal and bird relatives, with contributions from many of our favourite artists.
