Shopping (detail), 1996
On view August 5, 2005 to March 28, 2010
Located in the: Contemporary Native American Art, Wheatland Gallery
The sculptures and paintings in All of My Life embrace the experiences and worldviews of nine contemporary Native American artists who call upon and reinterpret both Native American painting and sculpting traditions that are thousands of years old as well as those of modern art. Artists such as Mateo Romero and David Bradley have chosen oil painting and social realism as their means of tackling the political landscape of being Native American in today's changing world. Truman Lowe interprets the Eastern shorelines in sculpting an abstracted, suspended structure in willow. Other artists represented in the exhibition include Barbara Cerno, Tammy Garcia, Dan V. Lomahaftewa, Judith Lowry, Rick Rivet and Kathleen Wall.
