Allie High: New Works

Opening Reception: First Thursday, Oct 6th 6-8pm

sm-inpageIn October we invite Alaska-based contemporary artist Allie High (Aleut/Haida/Ts’msyen) to debut new prints and painted drums at the gallery, as well as possible works in silver and glass. High’s print series are well-loved by collectors, who fall for her prints of animals rendered in flowing formline, and her boldly painted drums. In the past, she has contributed works in ceramic, wood and hand-carved sterling silver to our exhibitions, and we eagerly look forward to seeing what emerges from her studio for this show.

Allie High was born in Ketchikan, Alaska. She is Aleut and a Ts’msyen Raven Killerwhale crest Haida from Massett, B.C. Her great grandparents were among the first to follow Father Duncan to establish New Metlakatla in the Alaska territory. She has a Master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies (art, theater, and sociology) from the University of Texas in Tyler, Texas. She also has a bachelor’s degree in art education from the University of Oregon. She has taught art in public schools in Alaska and Texas as well as University courses in Alaska and Louisiana. Ms. High has been an artist in residence and lecturer in museums and other cultural venues.
