Native American Works On Paper

This exhibition of works on paper by Native American artists such as Gilbert Atencio, Kay B., Arthur Begay, Archie Blackowl, Nat Coriz, Woody Crumbo, Robert Draper, Kananginak, Kiakshuk, R. Naha, and Paul Pletka fills EPMA’s mission toward American artists. It is particularly important to recognize these artists because they are often marginalized and often left out of the canon of art history. Some of these artists were trained at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, which was created to cultivate and reignite the lost artistic and cultural traditions of the Native American people. The subjects in these works depict ritualistic scenes primarily in flat shapes that were contrary to the popular Euro-American Abstract Expressionist movement or the traditional one-point perspective illusion of space in use since the Italian Renaissance.
