Sometimes I wonder if we have hit our limit of great artists, then new artists approach the gallery for representation. I'm constantly impressed by the quality of work these regional artists are creating, and the excitement they have for the opportunity to show their work in Pawhuska and their state.
In the next few weeks, we will add 4 more artists working in acrylic, oil, pottery and basketry. This will bring our total number to 30.
The digital image in this blog is by Linda Guenther. Using images she captures on her travels, she manipulates them to tell a story. Printed on aluminum, the pieces take on a light and quality of their own. Linda often travels to the Tallgrass to collect her images.
Look for additions of nationally known Native American Artists this month as we continue to grow this part of our collection. It's our goal to show a balance of works that truly represent the cultures of the Osage and Tallgrass Region. And, of course, we've got a few surprises up our sleeves as well.
I personally can't express my own pride at being able to represent some of the best Western, Wildlife and Native American Artists in the region as we grow one of the best art galleries in the mid-west. These outstanding artists represent the best of the best.
