Paints, Beads, Quills, and Gratitude

with artist Dyani White Hawk

Dyani White Hawk incorporates the practices of painting, beadwork, and porcupine quillwork, creating works that are tied to and build upon the histories and intersections of modern abstraction and Lakota art forms.

She will speak about the development of her practice as well as the works and concepts driving her latest body of work currently featured in See Her, a solo exhibition at the Lilley Museum of Art in Reno, Nevada.

Dyani White Hawk (Sičáŋǧu Lakota) is a visual artist and independent curator based in Minneapolis. White Hawk earned a MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2011) and BFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico (2008).

Recent support of White Hawk’s work includes 2019 United States Artists Fellowship in Visual Art, 2019 Eiteljorg Fellowship for Contemporary Art, 2018 Nancy Graves Grant for Visual Artists, 2017 and 2015 Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Fellowships, and 2014 Joan Mitchell Painters and Sculptors Grant. Her work is represented by Bockley Gallery in Minneapolis.

Doors open at 5:50 pm. There will be a small reception with refreshments in the downstairs lobby starting at 6 pm.
