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 or visit www.mnhs.org.


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, Nani Chacon, Chip Thomas, Kim Smith, Tom Greyeyes, Star Wallowingbull, Rabbet Strickland, Donald Montileaux, Alania Buffalo Spirit, Ron Toahanie Jackson, Michael Horse, Remy Fredenberg, Jaycee Beyale, Cheyenne Randall and Lucie Skjefte.
