Invisible-Visible Online Exhibit: Emerging Contemporary New England Native American Art
In the fall of 2010, The University Museum in UNH Dimond Library presented “Invisible/Visible,” a group exhibition of contemporary regional Native American artists curated by the renowned painter George Longfish (Seneca/Tuscarora). It featured a wide range of media by indigenous people who have lived and/or worked in New England. We are pleased to extend its “visibility” through this online version.
"We're Still Here" Online Exhibit: Contemporary Indigenous New England Artists
The exhibit, "We're Still Here: Contemporary Native American Art from New England," was planned in conjunction with the 2005 University of New Hampshire powwow.
Several New England Native artists were invited to participate in the exhibit; their work included basketry, leatherwork, woodcarving, beadwork, silver jewelry, weaving, and quilting. Historic artifacts were used to interpret the historic Oyster River Raid of 1694, and historic baskets were displayed with contemporary baskets to illustrate the influence of traditional methods.
