INDIGENOUS FINE ART EXHIBITION

Sherry Crawford put on a drive-thru Indigenous Fine Art Exhibition last month in Cavan.

Sherry’s had an exhibition scheduled for June at the gallery, but of course it has been postponed. So while waiting for the gallery to reopen and her exhibition to be rescheduled, she got this idea for a drive-through exhibition!

Sherry Crawford is a member of our gallery, has Algonquin roots, and has been ‘picking up the pieces’ of her Anishnaabe Culture for the past 20 years.  She embraces the traditional teachings and has been honoured and humbled to experience several Sacred Ceremonies. Many years ago, Sherry was given her “indian name”, shared with the Elders during a Shaking Tent Ceremony. She  is proud to connect to this special ceremonial name, White Bear Standing.  She brings the bear into many of her pieces.

She believes it is important to follow the 7 grandfather teachings and ‘walk her talk’…she believes the ‘rest’ will fall into place as it is supposed to.

UPDATE Friday, July 10

from the curator:

For months we cannot paint outside because it is too cold. Now we cannot paint outside because it is too hot…

Is it just me, or does this extreme heat stop you painting? What’s that? Nothing stops you painting? So it is just me!

How would you paint ‘heat’? I don’t mean a picture of the sun, or someone lying on a beach, or a fire. I mean, could you paint something that would make the viewer think “it’s hot” without directly portraying a hot object? Let me have your ideas!

I am posting a teaser image here. What is the story behind this photo? What title would you give it? Go search through the Virtual Galleries to find the answers!

I shall change the image regularly.

See you in the Virtual Gallery!

We also post regularly on our social media.
