If you're in Phoenix before February 13, please stop by the Heard Museum's Berlin Gallery to catch an interesting exhibit entitled Facing the Sunland: Works by America Meredith + Sallyann Paschall + Kay Walkingstick.
All three artists are of Cherokee descent but each has a very distinct style. In addition to their proud cultural heritage, the three women also come from backgrounds where art was in the family blood. Each representing the third generation in their family's artistic legacy, the artists' work in the exhibition is a cohesive whole that questions "shared identities, pop imagery, innovation and tradition."
Facing the Sunland opened on January 20. You only have a few more weeks to check it out, so don't miss it! For more information, visit the Berlin Gallery's blog.
The Berlin Gallery located in the Heard Museum Shop in downtown Phoenix "boasts an unprecedented retail gallery experience and an innovative way to view and purchase contemporary American Indian art by established and emerging Native artists for today's collector. The gallery is the latest extension of the Heard's educational mission with a retail focus on contemporary American Indian paintings, sculptures, photography, as well as, prints and drawings."
