Exhibition Opening & OK ARts Council Conference Celebration - "From the Belly of Our Being: art by and about Native creation"

Date: 
Tue, October 25 2016 - 11:00 am
Location: 
Oklahoma State University Museum of Art

A free, public reception and performance by Roams the Earth Dancers, an inter-tribal dance troupe. Dancers, singers, and drummers from various nations will engage and educate our audiences with rarely seen female-centered dances, songs, and stories that celebrate the feminine in Native cultures. 

From the Belly of Our Being is an exhibition of fine art by contemporary Indigenous women working in sculpture, painting, jewelry, ceramics, and installation, whose art is known to honor the feminine forces found in the artists’ tribal genesis stories.

This exhibition explores how these feminine forces continue to inform the ideals of feminine behavior and gendered role, the ability to be both delicate and gentle, while also being a force that is powerful and bold. The artworks in this exhibition represent those stories, where these feminine forces are of great intellect, wisdom, skill, and generosity. This exhibition provides an opportunity for the artists to express how these forces live through them and within the art.
