The exhibit opening will be on September 10, 2011 from 2-4 PM.
Contemporary Native artist, Russell Noganosh, is hosting an art show in a variety of mediums such as acrylic on canvas, hides painted with a sponge technique, and sculptures in stone, turtle shell, horse hair and polished stones, all to create a transmetamorphosis of his newer creations. Russell is a member of Henvey Inlet First Nation and has worked as a farm and construction labourer and took up sculpting stone with his friend Cecil Reeson. Later, under Isaac Bignell he started to paint.
In 1984 he received the university of Manitoba Bison artist of the year award and more recently has illustrated books, magazines and supplies private galleries in Toronto and North Bay with his work.
This new show contains 27 paintings and sculptures and will open to the public on Saturday, September 10 from 2-6 pm.
Russell has also become very involved in Native dancing and this exhibit opening will feature the Black Rover drum group and 4 fancy dancers as well as traditional foods by Susan McQuabie. Elder and painter Brian Marion will open the show which is free to the public.
