Bring your lunch and join artist Emmi Whitehorse (Navajo), as she discusses her art practice. See Whitehorse's work in New Impressions - Experiments in Contemporary Native American Printmaking, hanging in our main gallery.

Whitehorse is a painter and printmaker. Whitehorse grew up northeast of Gallup, New Mexico in a family where only the Navajo language was spoken. Whitehorse's paintings draw upon a personal iconography, based on reflections of her natural surroundings. She brings together Navajo cosmological perspectives with abstraction in her work. Whitehorse's work is deliberately apolitical. Her work is represented in public collections throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Uzbekistan and Morocco.

This free lunchtime series features guest speakers, open dialogue and engaging discussions around contemporary Native art.
