Up and coming First Nations artwork exhibit underway
BRANTFORD – With the renovations at the Woodland Cultural Centre still ongoing and the Walking Together exhibit closing on May 2, you might be wondering what’s coming next.
As one of the most anticipated exhibits, the First Nations Artwork (FNA) exhibit will open on
Friday, May 26, at 7 p.m. (The Opening Reception has been moved to Saturday May 27, 2017 at 7PM.)to feature a collaborative collection of indigenous artwork from across Turtle Island.
If you have never attended this event: this particular showing has been ongoing as an annual exhibit since its inception in 1975, and the exhibit serves as a collection of indigenous artwork that allows emerging First Nations artists to seek the spotlight. It is also as an excellent opportunity for up and coming artists to exhibit works in a fine art gallery setting and even sell their pieces.
Sculptures, installations, paintings, drawings, and traditionally based works will soon cover the gallery and offer visitors the opportunity to view unique and current pieces. Although only three pieces can be exhibited by each artist, the opportunity is still a very ripe one for positive exposure.
The exhibit will finalize on July 28, so if you are a lover of uncovering new talent — this exhibit is one you won’t want to miss.
