This spring we are showcasing the work of four contrasting contemporary Native American artists. Fine art photographer Cara Romero of the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe, Randy L Barton, Diné from Arizona, Cotswold based painter Rick Grimster, a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, and sculptor Addison Karl, Chickasaw and Choctaw.

Romero recently headlined major exhibitions at both The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New York and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Barton is an artist, designer, dancer, DJ and music producer from the Navajo Nation. In 2023, he was commissioned to design illuminated graphics for the Super Bowl.

Grimster is a 1960’s Art School graduate whose fascinating paintings came to light for the first time last year. He has since all but sold out two solo exhibitions in the UK and is preparing for a solo museum exhibition in the USA.

Addison Karl will be giving a talk at Rainmaker Gallery on Friday, 26th April from 3-4 PM.

We are honoured to share with you the work of these acclaimed artists. Together they indicate the vast cultural and artistic diversity thriving within Indigenous communities.
