Cree artist Whitehead Inspirations show Jan 15 - Feb 24
Released by Melissa Warren, CCAC
he Chilliwack Community Arts Council in collaboration with School District 33 Aboriginal Education Department are proud to present the vibrant and passionate art show: Inspirations by Cree Artist Jerry Whitehead.
Whitehead, a Saskatchewan born artist, creates colourful and lively art with an emphasis on powwows and powwow dancers.
"Powwow dancers have been an ongoing
theme in my work since I began painting. Seeing the dancers as a child
had a lasting impression. The subject matter has been ideal for
expressing a part of my culture as well as accommodating changes in my
work," says Whitehead.
