Noyes Art Gallery, 119 S. Ninth St. in downtown Lincoln, will host a Third Friday event April 20 featuring work inspired by Native American traditions, themes and people.
For example, Bonnie Burgeson attends pow wows and photographs the dancers. Painter David Dorsey depicts Native American subjects in his stunning realistic paintings.
From 6-9 p.m., these and seven other Noyes artists will present new work during an Intimate with the Artists event. The other artists are Ramona Fink (furniture & jewelry), Mike Fluent (sculpture), Layne Mills (painting), Rick Young (sculpture), Susan Woodford (sculpture), Megan Moffett (paintings and mixed media) and Ron Brooks (sculpture). These artists represent a wide variety of visions and subjects.
Also in the gallery’s Gold Room, Union College students, under the instruction of Julia Noyes, will display their oil paintings.
Additionally, from 6-6:30 p.m. KZUM radio host Leo Yankton will sing and offer the sage blessing outside the gallery. Yankton’s role in supplying Standing Rock protesters with necessities and information led to speaking engagements around the world. He also will share his own coming-of-age story as a motivational speaker for Native American youth.
Parking is available both on and off the street.
