Artist Talk: Teri Greeves
May 21, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
How do contemporary Native artists reflect their heritage and convey traditions for today’s audiences? Like Preston Singletary featured at the Wichita Art Museum this spring, Teri Greeves is internationally known for translating her tribal past into exquisite art for the present. Greeves inventively blends abstract, geometric tradition of Kiowa bead work with the Shoshone pictorial style into her own visual language.
Greeves’ work is collected in art museums across Europe and the United States. In 2018, the University of Virginia awarded her the Mellon Indigenous Arts Visiting Fellowship. She co-curated of the exhibition Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists presently on national tour at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. Please join us for an illustrated talk as artist Teri Greeves explores her artwork in the context of Native art in the 21st century.
