A Generation Rises

A Group Exhibition

_dsc9881A generation is rising—can you hear it? It’s the sound of brushes and adzes scraping cedar, and the hum of computers and clicking of mice. A group of young artists are coming into their own—can you see it? It’s metal and glass, wood and hide, paint and pixel and pencil.

Young indigenous artists are claiming their artistic birthright, and finding inspiration in the art forms of their ancestors. Born in the 1970s and 1980s, they are the vanguard of formline design, learning from their elders and family members, and confidently striding in new directions. As the first generation to grow up with computers at their fingertips, many of these artists are making use of digital design, printing and fabrication.

Stonington Gallery has been honored to watch the work of this burgeoning generation evolve. Helping to guide and support the careers of these artists continues to be a duty that we happily take on, and includes many surprises along the way.
