'New Visions in Native American Art' opens at BPA Gallery
November 2, 2012 · 10:59 AM
The Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery presents “New Visions in Native American Art” in November.
The show opens for the First Friday Art Walk at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2.
The special collaborative show features two Native souls; “photo-graphics” by Angelynn and glass by Larry Ahvakana.
Angelynn’s unique art, which has been shared at the Smithsonian Native American History Museum by Walter Ward (Chairman Hoh River People), expresses her love of her Kiowa heritage. “Photo-graphics” marries her skills in photography and paint.
Ahvakana (Inupiaq/Eskimo) is a world-renowned artist. His glass installations marry the influences of contemporary artists with his own ancestral traditions.
A second reception for the artists will be held at 6:45 p.m. Friday Nov. 16 ahead of “Native American Flute and Storytelling” with renowned Seattle musician Gary Stroutsos. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and one hour prior to each performance. Admission is free.
