“‘Native POP’ has received outstanding reviews for it’s broad range of subject matter and media,” said Bruce Carter, who is a member of the Preserving Arts in the Osage organization.
“Artists showing in ‘Native Pop’ include Bunky Echo-Hawk, Ryan Redcorn and George Levi. Using various media, the participating artist’s works visualize current social and cultural issues confronting Native Americans in a contemporary framework. From ‘street art’ to ledger art, ‘Native Pop’ will provide both visual and cerebral stimulation. Visitors can expect to leave with a new perspective on what ‘Native American Art’ is,” Carter explained.
Preserving Arts in the Osage, the hosting organization, is bringing this ground-breaking show to historic downtown Pawhuska.
According to Carter, “this is the first of five consecutive art shows planned for Ole #1 Firehouse. Upcoming shows in 2016 for Pawhuska’s ‘Year of Art and Culture’ include Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition ’20 Works on Paper’, ‘American Plains Artists Signature Show’ and ‘Oklahoma Sculpture Society Statewide Show’. In July the Firehouse will be home for ‘Where the Buffalo Roam’, open to artists in any media, as long as the subject is bison.”
