The Ottawa School of art is proud to present Storytelling a selection of pieces featured in the 2nd edition of the Contemporary Native Art Biennial. The exhibition takes place from September 12 to October 19, 2014 at the Ottawa School of Art’s Orleans Campus Gallery on the main floor of the Shenkman Arts Centre, Orleans.
Come join us Sunday September 28 for 12pm to 3pm for Artist Talk and reception in the Gallery. Artist Talk will be by Adrian Stimson, artist of Beyond Redemption, 2010 (the bison installation).
Exploring the theme of storytelling and its importance in native cultures, Storytelling is a powerful exhibit with compelling artwork by 6 North American Native artists in diverse media. Infused with something profoundly contemporary, these stories come to us from strong voices telling us their stories empowered by their past. The artists invite the public to listen and discover their stories, and share their truths.
The featured artists and works are: Adrian Stimson’s Bison installation, Amelia Winger-Bearskin’s video work, Frank Shebageget’s riveting float plane installation, Meryl McMaster’s series of photographs, Leonard Getinthecar (Nicholas & Jerrod Galanin) mixed media works , and Michael Anthony Simon’s mixed media work.
