Jordan Ann Craig & Marla Allison

Native women at the opening of PATTERN exhibition, Rainmaker Gallery

A huge thank you to everyone who came to the opening of our wonderful winter exhibition PATTERN, especially featured Native artists Marla Allison (Laguna Pueblo) and Jordan Ann Craig (Northern Cheyenne). It was particularly special to welcome back Marla for her third visit to Bristol in three years! It was Jordan’s first visit to Bristol but I suspect not her last. Her work has been extremely well received in two of our exhibitions this year and she is concurrently showing at October Gallery in London throughout the winter.

It is always special when Native people show up to support our events and last week five amazing Native American women attended the opening – see featured photograph. Left to right:  Melinda Schwakofer (Muscogee Creek), Marla Allison (Laguna Pueblo), Stephanie Pratt (Dakota), Jordan Ann Craig (Northern Cheyenne), Brigit Craig (Northern Cheyenne).

PATTERN runs until the 31st January 2020. Please check the website for seasonal closing times.
