Today, May 3, 2014, was the Opening Reception for the Standing In Two Worlds exhibition at the Iroquois Museum. There was a great number of people who showed up to experience the great artwork from many contemporary Haudenosaunee Artists. There was a variety of artwork that ranged from traditional beadwork, pottery, sculpture, painting, and display art.
I am so glad that I went to the opening, I got to meet new people and say hello to old friends again. It was such a colorful and lively show. Its always great to talk to all the artists and get their perspective on their work, and always interesting to hear their thoughts about your work as well. But the main point that was made through out all of the work that was displayed, is that even though we are Haudenosaunee people, living in this modern society, we are still very much rooted (and always will be) in our culture and traditions as Ongweñhoñweh. I am so proud that my work was selected to be in such a terrific art exhibition.
The show will be up at the Iroquois Museum until November 30, 2014.
