    Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist

    Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist is the first major retrospective of the artistic career of Kay WalkingStick (b. 1935), a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and one of the country's most celebrated artists of Native American ancestry.

    For nearly half a century, she has explored her own hybrid cultural identity through her art and life. A citizen of both the United States and the Cherokee Nation, she has forged an artistic identity that reflects the times in which she has lived and the beauty she has encountered in the U.S. and abroad.

    Featuring more than 65 of her most notable paintings, drawings, small sculptures, notebooks, and the diptychs for which she is best known, the exhibition traces her career over more than four decades and culminates with her recent paintings of monumental landscapes and Native places.

    Organized chronologically around themes that mark her artistic journey, Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist traces a path of constant invention, innovation, and evolving artistic and personal growth through visually brilliant and evocative works of art.

    Opening Day Celebration: Kay WalkingStick Exhibition - Saturday, June 17 11:00am-5:00pm
