Wyche Gallery features Native American exhibit

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

The exhibition “Women of the Red Earth” gives a view through the Indigenous lens and features the poems of Tonya Holy Elk Locklear, who is Lumbee/Oglala Lakota, and the visual art work of Margie Beth Labadie, who is Ashkenazi-Levi. Visually striking Native American objects entice viewers to come closer to read newly written, untold histories of Native Americans who continue to struggle in an overwhelmingly non-indigenous United States. This Native American – non-Native American collaboration crosses cultural boundaries and open up lines of communication between all communities. Everyone is cordially invited to participate in the afternoon discussion and attend the opening reception to learn more about the poetry and art from Earth Women Arts. The companion book, “Women of the Red Earth” is available this through their website, EarthWomenArts.com.

The artists’ reception is Thursday, January 25, 5-7 p.m.   There will be a  “Talking Circle” from 5-6 p.m.  This is an open discussion with the artists and all who wish to join to share ideas and experiences on contemporary issues in the Native American community.

The Wyche Gallery, located upstairs in A Building, features work by local and regional artists. It offers an educational opportunity to our students and community through exhibitions, visiting artist lectures, and artist workshops. New exhibits are on view every six weeks during the Spring and Fall semesters. The Student Art Show, held each April, features work created by students in the studio courses during the academic year. Funding for the gallery is provided by the SCC Foundation.
