Featuring: The Artists of the "Hill"
Exhibition Dates: February 19 to March 27, 2008
Location: Multicultural Center Art Gallery (Baker University Center 2nd Floor)
There is a unique group of people who meet in Southeast Ohio at a place called the “Hill”. There under the direction of Wendell and Cathy Humphrey they come together as a “tiyospaye”, or extended family. Coming from all walks of life, students and community meet and participate in Lakota ceremonies. A few of these people present to you their art. “Pilamiya” -Thank you
The works being displayed encompass the wide differences in the personal interpretation of art. Many of the materials come from the natural world; in life all things come from Sacred Mother Earth. Today, as in early times, clay is formed into pottery and pigments for paint. Animal hides are still used in the making of everything from clothing and shelter to drum tops. Bone, horn, beads, and quillwork are used in decorating many items. Using traditional and modern methods, we the Artists of the Hill come together to present our works of Native Art.
