Reception for "Seen Through Native Eyes: A Celebration of Native Art" Friday, March 1
A reception for Robert Two Bulls and Johnson Loud, the featured artists in the Seen Through Native Eyes: A Celebration of Native Art at the Grand Marais Art Colony will be held Friday, March 1. The community is invited to the Art Colony at 6 p.m. to meet these talented artists. In celebration of this meaningful exhibit, there will be light refreshments and music by jazz guitarist Briand Morrison.
Seen Through Native Eyes: A Celebration of Native Art is brought to the community by a collaboration between the Art Colony and Spirit of the Wilderness Episcopal Church. Mary Ellen Ashcroft, vicar of Spirit of the Wilderness explains the purpose of the exhibit. She said, “We hope to delve deeply and begin to see (at least realize what we can’t see) through native eyes, both to broaden our artistic vision, but also to deepen our understanding. In this year of the 150th anniversary of the massacre of 38 Dakota warriors, we felt it appropriate to stop and consider from a different perspective.”
Their work will be on display in the Grand Marais Art Colony’s small gallery for four weeks.
