I’m so excited for tonight’s opening– the show is called CULTURE, and features art by talented Navajo artist JayCee Beyale as well as Michelle Lowden, from Acoma Pueblo. This is contemporary Native art at its finest, and you don’t want to miss it! Also, somewhere around 6 or 7 pm tonight, The Reminders will play a short set! Please go out and support all the other galleries, too– remember, The Modbo stays open until midnight!
This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.
Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
