There will be an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the Yager Museum of Art & Culture at Hartwick College for “dadibaajimo: Two Mississauga Artists Share Stories,” an exhibition featuring the work of contemporary indigenous artists Cathie Jamieson and Luke Swinson.
Both artists will be there to discuss their work. The event is free and refreshments will be provided.
“We are thrilled that we can share Jamieson and Swinson’s artwork with the Hartwick community, Oneonta, and Central New York,” said Dr. Quentin Lewis, collections and programs manager for the museum, and the exhibit’s curator, in a media release. “Both artists draw on their Anishnaabe-Mississauga heritage for imagery, themes, and artistic inspiration. But like all great artists, they reconfigure those inspirations in new and exciting ways. I’m excited that the Yager Museum can continue to be a space to showcase Indigenous art and culture in the past, present, and future.”
Jamieson is a member of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and resides on the Credit Reservation in Ontario, Canada, according to the media release. For more information go to www.cathiejamieson.com.
