Recent Works by Anita Fields and Tony Tiger

OPENING RECEPTION NOVEMBER 7 | 5PM – 7PM

Joy Pratt Markham Gallery at Walton Arts Center running November 7- January 25

The exhibition Linking the Past to the Present features works by Oklahoma artists Anita Fields (Osage) and Tony Tiger (Sac and Fox). Like other contemporary Native American artists, their work is constantly changing and developing, while the past remains an integral part in their creative explorations. Whereas Fields incorporates abstract nature-related motifs based on traditional Osage textiles or Native American ceramics, Tiger uses historic photographs and tribal designs in his canvases to analyze different facets of tribal history and their continuing relevance. By embracing their own histories, both artists confirm the links that join past and present to the future.

Sharon Irla Featured in TulsaPeople

For a special preview of the [Cherokee Art Market], TulsaPeople chatted with one of the visiting artists for our October issue:

From her childhood, Cherokee artist Sharon Irla recalls her mother’s sewing room and the handmade quilts and painted Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup bottles created by her grandmother. Both women influenced Irla’s career, first as a muralist and trompe l’oeil artist, and currently as an oil painter inspired by her Native American ancestry and culture.

Read all about it in the October issue of Tulsa People.
