Brenda Mallory

2020 Mentor Artist Fellowship

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.

A Closer Look at “Connecting Lines”


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.
