Notable Artists from the Gallery
Britt Freda: She is an artist captivated by nature and draws her inspiration from it. She encourages the viewer of the panting to “travel not only the roads that we see but the ones… lost along the way.” The paintings she creates, though deeply rooted in realism, have subliminal elements such as etched words, poems and maps which are layered on top of distinctive patterns.
Freda finds herself drawn to the details in a painting both conceptually and visually. She says that one’s perspective of an abstract painting should not stop at the surface and they must delve deep into the scratched drips and dirt of the stories that lie within. As a person gets closer to a painting, she believes, that the structure that the mind had preconceived about the painting begins to break, allowing for the same painting to appear different.
She feels that her style of painting may seem fairly simplistic at first, but upon having a closer look, the same paintings open up a world of learning and perspective. She says that her paintings seek to stimulate the senses so that people understand and take away more from them than what first meets the eye. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and so does detail when it comes to Freda’s paintings. She has taken inspiration from the intricate details upon closer inspection of the world and she wants the viewer and enthusiast to do the same.

Nocona Burgess: He’s a “Comanche” from Lawton, Oklahoma. Artistry runs in the Burgess family and Nocona has been exposed to art all his life. His grandfather and grandmother Simmons and Ina Parker were both artists. As Mr. Burgess says, “Art runs in my blood.” After a year at the University of Oklahoma, he moved to Santa Fe and discovered the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe. There he found his inspiration for the masterpieces he creates today.
