CHICAGO - Trickster Gallery announces the opening of its latest exhibit, called "Turtle Voices," this Saturday, October 1 at 1:00 pm. "Turtle Voices" is an exhibit that features finely designed and crafted American Indian beadwork by artist Douglas K. Limón, Oneida and Leech Lake Ojibwe.
Mr. Limón will be present to greet the public from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm.
"My work is an expression of the spirituality of ancient traditions and a culture that has survived thousands of years. My Turtle images combine beadwork with a variety of objects such as pins, buttons, ivory, stone, and porcupine quills," commented Limón. "My artwork is an expression based on the rich Native American culture, especially of the Ojibwe and the Oneida Nations, combined with the influence of contemporary materials and ideals of the modern world."
Limón was taught beadwork from his mother when he was five years old.
Mr. Limón is a fiscal year 2011 recipient of a Folk and Traditional Arts grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board for a cradleboard project.
"Turtle Voices" will be a featured exhibit of at Trickster Gallery through December 31.
