The 8th Annual Aboriginal Art Show Re-Opens Tonight at the Urban Shaman Gallery. Here’s more:
The Urban Shaman Gallery is proud to present the 8th annual Aboriginal Art Show. This year features a new juror, Darlene Coward-Anderson, who will select the best of Alberta’s aboriginal artists and their artwork.
Aboriginal art has been a huge part of Canada and Albertan culture for centuries but it is only in recent decades that this art form has been “discovered” by the non-aboriginal community. It is now more popular than ever and it is being recognized as one of the most expressive art forms in the world.
One of the most exciting things about aboriginal art is that it is constantly evolving in style and technique. Our gallery shows are a great way to see this evolution first hand, each year featuring only Albertan aboriginal artists allowing you to see how styles have changed and developed over time.
“The Urban Shaman Gallery’s Aboriginal Art shows are an important part of our gallery’s mandate, which is to promote aboriginal culture and heritage throughout Canada,” says Greg Woodbridge, owner of The Urban Shaman Gallery. “Aboriginal art is an integral part of our Canadian culture, history, and identity
The artists are also allowed to sell their work if they wish, but the proceeds go to a charitable cause. The show will be up until Feb. 1, so make sure you stop by before it closes!
The art is beautiful and inspirational, and the show is a great way to get into the holiday spirit.
Coming Soon: The 8th Annual Aboriginal Art Show will be opening tonight, starting at 7 p.m. If you are interested in aboriginal art or want to support a good cause, this is a great event to attend!
The show will be held in the UCCS Project Gallery on campus and is free and open to the public. There will be live performances by student groups as well as a silent auction, which features items such as gift cards and CDs.
The purpose of the art show is to promote aboriginal culture through visual art and music while raising money for charity. All of the proceeds from tonight’s event will benefit Family Promise of Colorado Springs—a non-profit organization that assists low-income families with housing needs.
The art show is opening on October 13 through the end of November.
The exhibition in the gallery will feature a number of different styles of artwork from several different Aboriginal groups from Canada.
There will be a variety of paintings, sculpture, prints and drawings that will showcase some traditional and contemporary pieces.
This is the eighth year the show has taken place and it features a large selection of works that have been created over the past year.
The curator said this years show is one of the best they’ve had yet.
“This year we have seen an increase in artists signed up for the exhibition,” he said. “We also have some unique pieces that I’m very excited about.” The cost for entry to the exhibition is by donation only. There will also be a raffle held with all proceeds going to the participating artists.
The Aboriginal Art Show is an annual event held at the National Museum of the American Indian. It’s a great place to see new and upcoming artists, and some artists who are already famous.
This year, the show will run from September 12-October 26. The museum is located in lower Manhattan, on 4th Avenue between 14th and 15th Streets.
The exhibits feature original paintings, sculptures, prints and more. All items for sale are created by Native American artists. While some of the art will be traditional pieces, there will also be abstract works as well as those that incorporate modern techniques and media.
It will be opened to the public at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 1, with a special dinner and auction gala. The dinner will include a traditional Piscataway Indian meal prepared by Monique Nohra of the Manna Café in Baltimore. Proceeds from the dinner will go to the Piscataway Indian School in Princess Anne, Md., which is now defunct.
Tribal members plan to perform traditional dances during the event. Guests will be able to meet tribal leaders from across the country, including Chief Jake Edwards of the United Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina and Chief Frank James of the Nansemond tribe in Virginia Beach.
Since the very beginning we have been taught that this land is not only for us but also for the native people. We were told to treat them with respect and that they were the original owners of this land. But what if the truth was something else? What if the truth was that aboriginal people are just like us: another culture, who came to Australia thousands of years ago?
To deny this would not be only disrespectful, it would be an insult to our intelligence and an insult to their identity. And if we are not allowed to even think about it because it is now considered politically incorrect, then why are they allowed to think about it and make up any story they like?
At this point I will have to tell you that I have a friend who is an aboriginal person who has made me question all ideas I had about Aboriginal people. For her, Aborigines are descendants of Noah’s son Ham through his son Canaan and therefore, Aborigines and Jews belong together as brothers.
The idea might sound crazy but when you look at Australian history and find out more about the Australian people you will see that there is some truth in her words.
