August 19 – December 31, 2011: "Counting Coup" - at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, 108 Cathedral Place, Santa Fe, NM 87501. Counting Coup is a form of prestige, pride and power. “Counting coup” is an expression originating from Plains Indian tactics of intimidation, and an act of bravery that accounts for survival originating from personal victories in non-violent battle exploits. The evidence of confrontation, interaction, and risk encountered through incessant forms of colonization are recorded as experiences and achievements etched in memory, heart and spirit. Counting Coup will include works by artists from the United States, Canada and Australia and range in media; sculpture, paintings, ceramics, textiles, photography, installation, film and video, and poetry.
Artists include Courtney Leonard, Shelley Niro, Teri Greeves, Duane Slick, Alfred Young Man, Marty Gradolf, Carl Beam, Marie Watt, Maria Hupfield, Alex Jacobs, Vern Ah Kee, Tom Jones, Jesus Barraza, Ryan Red Corn, Jim Denomie, Greg Staats, Jason Garcia and Nigit’stil Norbert w/ Paul Wilcken.Read more

"Interior Margins" - curated by Stephanie Snyder
November 12, 2011 - January 30, 2012
419 SW 9th Ave
11 am to 6 pm
"Interior Margins" was born around a dinner table in May of 2010, when eight women artists gathered to converse about painting and abstraction with Lumber Room founder Sarah Miller Meigs and Reed College curator Stephanie Snyder, within the Lumber Room's inaugural installation by San Francisco artist Léonie Guyer. The ideas discussed that evening catalyzed the desire for a further exhibition, one bringing together work of an intergenerational group of Northwest women artists who are transforming the diverse legacies and practices of abstraction for a new era.
Congratulations to Megan! Meagan plans to use the award money to make a new body of work called Interiors and a 20 year catalog of her work.Read more
