George Morrison: Drawing at the

Horizon”

Bockley Gallery is pleased to announce

its upcoming exhibition George Morrison: Drawing at the Horizon that

features a selection of drawings and important sketchbooks by the

Ojibwe artist. Many of the works, including documents, sketchbooks

and diaries were recently shown in an exhibition of the same title at

the Duluth Art Institute.

Drawing at the Horizon also coincides

with the traveling retrospective exhibition Modern Spirit: The Art of

George Morrison, at the Minnesota History Center.

Bockley Gallery,

2123 W. 21st St., Minneapolis, MN. Free. For more information, call

612-377-4669 or visit www.bockleygallery.com.

Through April 26

Modern Spirit: The Art of

George Morrison”

Born in the now-vanished village of

Chippewa City, Minn., near the Grand Portage Reservation, George

Morrison later adopted that signature Indian motif, the totem pole,

which he reinterpreted in modernist sculptures. His accomplishments

are eloquently reprised with over 80 paintings, drawings and

sculpture spanning his 60-year career, the show is a well-deserved

tribute to Morrison’s complexity, steady vision, integrity and

character.

Though initiated by the Minnesota

Museum of American Art (MMAA) in St. Paul, and drawn primarily from

the MMAA collection, the show is too big to fit into that museum’s

small exhibition galleries. Its History Center presentation is the

conclusion of a two-year tour to museums in Fargo, New York,

Indianapolis and Phoenix.

Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.;

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sundays, noon-5 p.m. Minnesota

History Center, 345 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul, MN. Admission: $11

adults; free on Tuesday evenings.

For more information, call 651-259-3000

Through May 9

The Art of Indigenous Resistance”

The Art of Indigenous Resistance is a

traveling exhibition of work by 20 Indigenous artists co-curated by

All My Relations Gallery and Honor the Earth. The exhibition is made

of both prints and original works of art that highlights Honor the

Earth’s 31 years of Indigenous outreach and community resistance. In

correspondence with the art and activism theme, we are excited to

also include paintings from the Minneapolis community.

Visual art plays an important role as

it has the ability to stimulate and encourage a unifying perspective.

Through art, it can evoke emotion, tell stories, inspire and

motivate. When channeled as a vehicle it carries issues of

consciousness where it can become a catalyst for meaningful change.

Artist Participants: John Isaiah

Pepion, Jesus Barraza, Jaque Fragua, Betty Laduke, Votan, Gregg Deal,

health services, limited access to quality health education, cultural

differences and social stigma. The Minnesota Department of Health
