RED EARTH GAZE – Opening Reception

October 12
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Organizer’s Site

RED EARTH GAZE features contemporary Native visual narratives that are reflective of each artists’ life perspective. Together in unison, these works coalesce notions from the past and present as we consciously emerge into the future, celebrating the expansive hopes and dreams of Native peoples as multidimensional beings.

Join us in the gallery for the public opening reception on Thursday, October 12th from 5 – 8pm. The exhibition coincides with the 17th annual Many Winters Gathering of Elders, and takes place on the unceded, traditional homelands of the Gabrielino Tongva-Kizh at Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC).

This group exhibition is curated by Gloria Gem Sánchez, a Xicana-Filipina Indigenous artist and longtime contributor to the Many Winters Gathering of Elders efforts at AGCC. Sanchez has assembled multiple generations of Indigenous artists, paying homage to the Elders who founded The Gathering, while also recognizing a younger generation of contemporary Native artists in a multitude of artistic medias. “To tell our stories and histories is a powerful tool of cultural sustenance. Native American author John Trudell said it best with his quote, ‘I am just a human being trying to make it in a world that is rapidly losing its understanding of being human.’ To make space for our own narratives is to participate in the human experience because without them, we could not know who we are or where we’ve come from.” – Sánchez

RED EARTH GAZE includes works by Weshoyot Alvitre, Miranda Calvin, Avis Charley, Joe Galarza, River Garza, Melissa Govea, Jesús Jesse Gutierrez, L. Frank Manriquez, Nicole Marie Merton, Carla Marie Muñoz, Tony Portillo, Xochitlmilko Portillo, Laurie Steelink, Mi’randa Villanueva, Alexandria Ybarra, Isaac Michael Ybarra, Veronica Ybarra, and Mer Young.
