Curated by Debra Yepa-Pappan Location: Beacon Street Gallery 410 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL Opening reception October 9, 2009 5 – 8pm Exhibition runs through December 20, 2009 “Intrigue and Novelty” highlights the work of 8 contemporary Native American women artists, each of whom is a superstar among her peers in the Native art scene. These women utilize conventional and modern methods/mediums to create images that resonate their individual experiences as Native American women. Portraying images of Native tradition and pop iconography, it’s evident that these women balance themselves between their traditional backgrounds which are rich in age old ceremonies and customs (Intriguing to non-Natives) and modern pop culture (Novelty). Artists include: Christine Caluya, Amber Gunn Gauthier, Nadya Kwandibens, Linda Lomahaftewa, Erica Lord, America Meredith, Rose B. Simpson, and Debra Yepa-Pappan. Visit: www.beaconst.org
