April: Jerrod Galanin
Raven's Magic Box: Order From Chaos
Over this past year Jerrod Galanin–Tlingit artist, dad of a new baby, human being–found himself at home in lockdown like the rest of the world, trying to make sense of the changes and challenges life now presented. During this time, many found new ways of channeling stress, anxiety, confusion, and fatigue—all of the emotions that were building up over the course of the many months isolated from the rest of our families, co-workers, and friends. Some took up gardening, some read many more books than ever before—Jerrod, found himself seeking out new ways of expressing himself creatively as an artist. Check out some of his new drawings using markers, color pencils, pastels, graphite, and charcoal on paper. He also has some fresh graphic design pieces that are near and dear to his heart. Lastly, learn the meaning behind Yéilch Aan ḵut ḵuwliyél Daakeit- (The box that raven tricked people with). We are so excited to share this with you!
