Contemporary Native American weaving exhibition opens May 1 at the Hardesty Arts Center
Intertwined, Stories of Splintered Pasts: Shan Goshorn & Sarah Sense runs through July 5, 2015.
Curator Heather Ahtone describes the exhibition in a forthcoming catalogue essay:
“Weaving relies on the careful cultivation and planning for a project that will transcend the limitations of the original material, bound in measured and intertwined parts, to have the potential to hold great burdens within its supportive walls. This is the nature of Intertwined, Stories of Splintered Pasts. Shan Goshorn and Sarah Sense have brought together their shared love of weaving to address the complex political and social history of Native American experiences through artistic examination.”
A public opening reception will be held during the Brady Arts District’s May 1 First Friday Art Walk from 6:00 to 9:00pm at the Hardesty Arts Center. A variety of public programs, cultural partnerships, and educational opportunities associated with the exhibition will also be offered. A list of programming can be found at www.ahhatulsa.org/
Intertwined, Stories of Splintered Pasts is sponsored in part by grants from the Mid-America Arts Alliance and from the National Endowment for the Arts – Art Works. Read more about the exhibition, including individual artist statements online at http://www.ahhatulsa.org/
