The Urban Shaman Gallery invites the public to their Gallery on Saturday, May 27 at 3pm and to the AGSM on the evening of Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 7pm for Lita Fontaine’s book launch!
The Urban Shaman Gallery writes:
While Lita Fontaine is a contemporary visual artist, just as importantly she is a traditionalist in every sense of the word. She has been raised with a deep understanding her background in both Dakota and Anishinaabe cultures, which constitutes the core of her art practice. She is constantly exploring various facets of her contemporary visual arts knowledge to develop her traditional ideas, and suggest ways in which traditional teachings are continually relevant. The Art Gallery of South Western Manitoba (AGSM) and Urban Shaman (US) produced exhibitions on Fontaine back in 2013, we have now produced a full colour catalogue that illustrates both exhibitions and looks to other past works that have become known as her signature style of painting and found objects collages. Both galleries will be scheduling two book launches to take place in Winnipeg and Brandon, Manitoba.
