Highpoint Editions artist Julie Buffalohead’s print, Trickster Showdown, will be featured in the exhibition “Of Legends and Lore” at the Walton Arts Center. “Curated by Cynthia Nourse Thompson, works included in Of Legends and Lore explore familiar folklore, traditional stories and myths, serving as interpretations, examinations and versions of these tales. The contemporary artists presented in this exhibition contemplate and examine the psychological, ethical and social implications embodied in storytelling through the lens of feminism, mythology, social history and literature. Moreover, reinventions of these narratives subvert ethical norms and behavior, exemplifying the tangible complications and difficulties of our world that is constantly in flux.
The featured artists for the installation include Kiki Smith, Amy Cutler, Beth Cavener Stichter, Julie Buffalohead, Anne Siems and Jonathan Thomas. Many of the artists have works featured in prestigious galleries including the Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Smithsonian American Art Museum.” - waltonartscenter.org
