Contemporary Art Forms By America’s First People, an exhibition that celebrates the works of some of today’s most acclaimed Indian American artists, opens this 4th Friday (Aug. 24) at the Arts Center, 301 Hay St. in downtown Fayetteville.
“This is the second time that the Arts Council will present an exhibition that features the contemporary works of America’s first people,” says Deborah Martin Mintz, Executive Director. “The first one – in 2016 – was so well-received, we decided to bring it back. Some of the same artists are included in the upcoming exhibition, as well as new artists.”

The works span various media, including paintings, drawings, textiles, pottery and baskets. The featured artists are: Dorothy Grant, Chevron Lowery, Gloria Lowery, Tabitha Jacobs- Polanco, Karina McMillan, Jessica Clark, Keith Carter and Senora Lynch. The exhibition will run August 24 - October 20, 2018.
