Vanishing Species - Art Exhibition External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Award-winning artist Rita Sklar is a Signature member of the California Watercolor Association and an avid birder. Her awards include a special prize from The San Francisco Flyway Festival for her "Winged Migration in Black and White." The American Association of University Women selected two of her bird paintings to feature on greeting cards. She received a Distinguished Artist award from the National Museum of Women Artists. Her show, "Vanishing Species," features an exploration of the wonders of nature and the decline of many of our beautiful creatures. The compositions resonate with color and vibrant shadows, and Sklar's unique style imparts a sense of weight and structure to the paintings, not usually associated with watercolor. Critics describe her paintings as a mix of abstraction and realism, giving the paintings a feeling of movement and immediacy and praise her work as "capturing the subtle mood of the mystery of nature." For a preview, visit her web site at www.ritasklar.com.

THE STAUTH MEMORIAL MUSEUM TO DISPLAY EDWARD S. CURTIS PHOTOGRAPHS OF SOUTHWEST INDIANS External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
Venue: We are expecting many tours for this exhibit so please call in advance for groups of 5 or more! Tour
A selection of early 20th century photographs from the Edward S. Curtis portfolio of the Southwest Indian will be presented at the Stauth Memorial Museum in Montezuma, Kansas from April 15, 2017 to May 28, 2017. The over 50 photogravures that make up the "Edward S. Curtis: Indians of the Southwest" exhibition capture many of the significant aspects of Indian culture in modernized Indian nations. Curtis was struck by the reality of the North American Indian as a vanishing race. He felt compelled to record their rites and traditions before it was too late. When Curtis began his project in 1896, the Indians were in a painful period of transition. The hallowed grounds of their ancestors were being settled and irrigation ditches were blighting the Indian's wild buffalo hunting grounds. Famous Indian chiefs were living in prisons or on reservations. Geronimo, at age 76, was taking care of a small vegetable garden while a prisoner at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. ////// This exhibition is made up of photographs of pottery and other artifacts shot in such a way as to highlight their functional shapes and textures. The photographs of the ceremonial rites reflect the Pueblo Indian's strong religious beliefs as well as the indigenous harmony between man and his environment. Among the most remarkable of the exhibition photographs are those of the pueblos and other landscapes of the tribal regions, as well as the beautiful, moving portraits of men, women and children he met during his study. ///// The photographs in this display were selected from Curtis's complete publication, The North American Indian, one of the largest photographic archives ever created by a single artist and probably the most profound representation of pure Indian culture ever made. The complete publication consists of 20 volumes of text with fifteen hundred small plates, plus 20 portfolios of unbound gravure plates, comprising a total of approximately twenty-five hundred images. The Curtis project took over 30 years and about one million dollars to complete. Cur
Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to help pay for this incredible exhibit!
