Oklahoma City’s premier Native American art gallery is showcasing the work of Shelby Rowe, Karin Walkingstick and Kindra Swafford, three First American artists whose diverse artistic skills span from beading to watercolor painting to pottery.
Shelby Rowe is a proud citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and a dedicated bead worker. For Rowe, art is an expression of mending brokenness, with symbolism throughout the process: fragile beads become nearly indestructible when they have been woven together.
Cherokee artist Kindra Swafford drew her early inspirations from pop culture – Jim Lee’s comic work, Disney movies and video games. Today, her art retains the exuberance of that early passion in her vivid colors and playful compositions, particularly in watercolor.
Karin Walkingstick is a Cherokee potter who has committed her time exclusively to creating one-of-a-kind works of pottery using techniques that echo her Cherokee culture. All of her pieces are hand-coiled and stone-burnished.
