Celebrating Abenaki Arts, Heritage, & Culture: Gallery Opening & Artist Reception

June 3, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Celebrating Abenaki Art, Heritage, & Culture
Join us at Stone Valley Arts as we celebrate the work of 8 American Abenaki Artists. These Artists have woven together their heritage into traditional and contemporary American Abenaki Fine Art, available for viewing, interaction, and for purchase.
The Artists Reception is a special opportunity to meet some of the artists behind this diverse body of work and connect with local native community.
Celebrating Abenaki Arts, Heritage, and Culture is a multi-year project that is focused on creating opportunities for non-Abenaki individuals to begin a journey of gaining insights and understanding about a resilient and creative people who were the first humans to live on this land, which is now known as Vermont.
Through the display of art and a series of collateral offerings of workshops, lectures, artist interactions, storytelling, and music, Stone Valley Arts hopes to open eyes, build bridges, and enrich each viewer, listener, and participant.
“As someone who greatly values my own Polish heritage and all it has to offer,” says SVA executive director, Diane Bargiel, “I am captivated by what I am learning about the values, philosophies, talents, and traditions of our Abenaki neighbors whose ancestors have been here for over 13,000 years. I might be a little biased, but it seems to me that the Arts offer great ways to kind of ‘shake hands’ with each other.”
The Celebrating Abenaki Arts, Heritage, & Culture Art Show will be open at Stone Valley Arts from May 31 – July 30, 2023
More workshops will be hosted by Stone Valley Arts this summer of 2023. Stay tuned on our Facebook page or check our website’s Event’s calendar and/or register for our email announcements at www.stonevalleyarts.org for upcoming workshop dates!
