CULTURAL EXPLORATION WITH SILVER
(Continues through the end of September)
A group of five emerging Alaska Native artists are featured for First Friday during the months of August and September at the Alaska Native Arts Foundation. The artists participated in a six-day advanced jewelry-making workshop where they delved into the intricacies and complexities of working with silver as a new art form. Instructor and Master Artist Nicholas Galanin, an internationally acclaimed Tlingit/Aleut artist from Sitka, worked alongside his brother and co-instructor Jerrod Galanin.
The workshop participants were Allie High (Aleut/Haida/Tsimshian), Eve Mendehall (Inupiat), Norman Natkong, Jr. (Haida), Benjamin Schleifman (Tlingit) and Robin Lovelace-Smith (Tagish/Tlingit). Each artist will showcase four pieces: one silver piece that shows the craftsmanship demonstrating what they learned from the workshop and three in the mediums they normally work.
