Date: June 13, 2024
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Event Description:

Join us at our office, 54 Hanover Street, for the Positive Street Art Summery Gallery Opening Reception for: Echoes and Shifts – An exhibition of resilience and reclamation; Akwesasne in the Granite State. This gallery will feature by works by George Longfish (Seneca/Tuscarora) and the vibrant photographs of Marjorie Kaniehtonkie Skidders (Akwesasne Mohawk). See below for more information and additional galleries and activities across southern NH featuring parts of this exhibition.

Internationally renowned  curator and metalsmith Margaret Jacobs (Akwesasne Mohawk) and multimedia artist Yasamin Safarzadeh have joined forces with Positive Street Art to establish a multi-year endeavor with a growing list of community partners to bring one of the most happening and accessible Contemporary Indigenous exhibitions in the North East.
Everything from monolithic works by George Longfish (Seneca/Tuscarora), to the intimate and vibrant photographs of Marjorie Kaniehtonkie Skidders (Akwesasne Mohawk). Niio Perkins (Akwesasne Mohawk) will unveil an ensemble which is sure to have fashionistas salivating and her brother Roger Sosakete Perkins (Akwesasne Mohawk) will introduce NH to his art movement “Powowpopart”. Kaiahtenhtas Thompson (Akwesasne Mohawk) will dazzle us with her combinations of multiple beads, techniques and textures in her beadwork. Ansley Hill (Akwesasne Mohawk) has been working with MyTurn Nashua to execute a mural celebrating the city and its beautiful young adult populations. Ansley’s mother Carrie Hill (Akwesasne Mohawk) will lead an exhilarating basket weaving workshop  with sweetgrass and black ash bark: illuminating aspects of environmental degradation and cultural significance and relations to the land. Katrina Brown Akootchook (Oneida Nation of the Thames) and Erin Lee Antonak (Oneida)  have shipped exquisite and groundbreaking work which incorporates the materiality and conceptual who-ness of their phenomenological make ups. These works will enhance, for our populations, especially for our youth, the navigability of cultures which have suffered erasure and misrepresentation.
