Clan – Faye HeavyShield engages in a dialogue with the ways the idea presents itself, and through this process, the idea is distilled to reveal its true form, its essence. Like the land in which it takes place, the idea isn’t fenced in or restricted. It is free to become what it will be, and in that way, it is like the river or the valley. They are in a constant state of change, yet they are what they are. The resulting artwork reflects exactly that.

Grass Windows – Santiago Mostyn weaves a narrative that echoes over generations, the restless urge to set out in search of a better life, and the reverberating consequences of these journeys. Grass Widows collects these as blades of stasis amongst disparate paths of migration, within a knotted contemporaneous context of those who fled persecution, those who left to build a new utopic community, and those who set out on paths of discovery, profit, and adventure.

Abided with His Children – In his first solo exhibition project, Bryce Singer brings his distinctive ink drawing style to the oral histories of various Blackfoot peoples. Reading from Beverly Hungry Wolf’s The Ways of My Grandmothers and Percy Bullchild’s The Sun Came Down, Singer reformulates these histories through illustration. Written records of oral histories sought to preserve the stories in a manner that was both corrective and instructive.
