Peters Projects is pleased to present a curated exhibition featuring surprisingly edgy works by Native and Indigenous artists ranging from Alaska to New Mexico with a mix of pottery, photography, taxidermy, drawing and video. The exhibition, titled Free Spirit, is curated by Peters Projects director, Mark Del Vecchio, and will be on view at Peters Projects from July 7 to September 2, 2017, with an opening reception on Friday, August 18, 2017, from 5-7pm.
This exhibition shows a mix of artistic concepts that all deal with the current state of the country as well as the basic elements of earth, fire and water. Included in the exhibition are 8 North American Artists: Thosh Collins (Pima-Maricopa): Photography; Sonya Kelliher-Combs (Iñupiaq/Athabaska): Found Element Sculpture; Susan Folwell (Santa Clara): Pottery; Christine Nofchissey McHorse (Navajo): Pottery; Virgil Ortiz (Cochiti): Pottery; George Rivera (Tewa): Bronze Sculpture; Diego Romero (Cochiti): Pottery and Prints; Marcus Zúñiga (Mesitzo/Xicano): Video Art.
Each artist brings their own cultural history in the 21st century, many following the original traditions taught them by their ancestors while others are working with new media that breaks away traditional boundaries.
