Brenda Mallory is a contemporary mixed-media artist who creates prints, sculptures, installations and other artistic forms from materials which she often deconstructs in order to put them back together again.
Stop by our national headquarters on April 6, 2018 to view a unique installation by Cherokee visual artist Brenda Mallory.
Brenda Mallory’s installation art examines disruption caused by assimilation and its resulting disfigured reconnection.
Saturday, March 11, is a proud day for the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation and our 2016 Visual Arts Fellows Brenda Mallory (Cherokee Nation) and Luzene Hill (Eastern Band of Cherokee). The two installation artists open their joint exhibit “Connecting Lines” at the Portland Art Museum bringing unique perspectives on themes of disruption, violence against Native women, survival, renewal and empowerment.
Hill’s “Enate” and Mallory’s “Recurring Chapters in the Book of Inevitable Outcomes” masterfully blend contemporary and past in a multi-layered exploration of history and the resilience and determination to overcome them.
Join us in congratulating the eight accomplished Native artists, representing six states, named our 2018 Mentor Artist Fellows!
