Drew Michael: Shadows

 

Yup’ik/Inupiaq sculptor Drew Michael returns to Stonington Gallery with a small new body of work in winter 2018, kicking off our new year of exhibitions. Michael received a major and prestigious grant at the end of 2017, spurring the creation of new sculpture in his Alaska-based studio and a reinvigorated commitment to his sculptural practice. The works in “Shadows” will continue his evolving explorations of the intersections between traditional Native Alaskan art, what it means to be a contemporary Native Alaskan, Christian iconography, queer identity, and material culture.
