Exhibition Opening and Artist Awards
IN THE SPIRIT Contemporary Native Arts
Thursday, June 16, 6:00-7:30 PM
Every year we look forward to seeing the incredible art submitted by contemporary Native artists for this juried exhibition. Enjoy light refreshments and explore the 38 original works of art on view. You’ll see a wide range of mediums and themes, along with artists’ statements.
Opening night is also an opportunity to hear from some of these talented artists in person as the jury presents artist awards for Best in Show, Spirit of the Northwest, Honoring Innovation, Honoring the Ancestors, and the Purchase Prize. Artists are invited to receive awards and talk about their work and the influences on their creativity.
