- Introduction: Nocona Burgess presents modern depictions of Indigenous men and women from the tribal nations of the Southern Plans.
His paintings mix careful research, firsthand knowledge and raw passion. By combining brightly colored shapes and crisply outlines facial features and traditional dress, Burgess explores the cultural context, life story and identity of each sitter. In this way, he urges us to update our perceptions of Native people and consider the intriguing and often highly politicized place of Native American portraiture. Please join us for a reception and artist talk with Nacona Burgess on May 18th at 6pm. Free and open to the public.Return to full list >>
