The Soul of an Artist

Zoom Service – online only. Please see our Online Service information at top of the Homepage.

This presentation will focus on the creative act as an arc of the heart—longing to be, to become, and to belong.  No other artist illustrates this creative trajectory more poignantly than Tsa-sah-wee-eh (1943-1984) from Santa Clara Pueblo, NM. Her life and artwork reveal her cultural and spiritual quest as an indigenous woman of mixed ancestry who painted with a sense of urgency and authenticity. Her artwork will be shown in PPT slides.

Nia TGT is a member of the Cree tribe of Turtle Mountain Reservation, and she takes special interest in sharing an indigenous view of life from “the far side,” knowing it is not far away at all.
