Lawton Gallery exhibit highlights contemporary Native art
UW-Green Bay’s Lawton Gallery will feature a new exhibit of works by Native artists from Thursday, Oct. 7, through Nov. 4. “Mostly Indian and Other Fables” includes contemporary works by 24 Native artists from the United States and Canada. The works celebrate the ways First Nations artists are working with old and new traditions to create works that speak to the present, the past and the future.
Among special events during the exhibit:
• The opening reception is 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 7, with 5 p.m. remarks by co-curators Stephen Perkins and Amii John, a UW-Green Bay alumnus, and contributor Danielle Tousey Schmidt.
• Perkins and John will be holding tours and talks from noon to 1 p.m. each Wednesday during the exhibit’s run.
• Chris Pappan, one of the Native artists featured in the exhibit, will discuss his “Lowbrow Native American Art” at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 11, in the Union’s Christie Theatre.
