Big Rock River: Contemporary Indigenous Art in an Ancient Land
Ohkotoksitahtayi, the river named for the Big Rock and also known as the Sheep River, lies at the heart of this region and is imbued with and surrounded by thousands of years of Indigenous history, story and art. This narrative continues, revealed by the wealth of artistry being created by contemporary Indigenous artists who call Treaty 7 home, and whose practices are rooted in rich cultural legacies.
These practices are exemplified by the seven nationally recognized artists we are proud to represent in the Okotoks Art Gallery’s first exhibition of Treaty 7 art, including Judy Anderson, Brittney Bear Hat, tīná gúyáńí (Deer Road), Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal, Lucas Hale and Adrian Stimson.
Converse Subversives | Shona Rae
“Converse Subversives” is Shona Rae's latest series of narrative/figurative sculptures that engages traditional myths, fairy tales, folklore, ancient artifacts and personal history to explore how societies in the past through to the present dealt with social inequalities, gender identification, ageism, rape, plague and political upheavals. In times of change, stories can be a comfort to cling to or a tool to probe with.
