Reconnecting: A Cultural Journey, Art by Lyn Risling


Thursday, February 14, 2019 - 12:00pm to Sunday, March 10, 2019 - 5:00pm


Goudi'ni Native American Arts Gallery


This exhibition will feature artwork by Lyn Risling, celebrating the publication of her latest illustrated book, Coyote at the Big Time: A California Indian 123 (2018), and also showcasing her earlier book A is For Acorn: A California Indian ABC (2015). The show will comprise artworks by the artist, along with physical copies of her books. Risling is an important local artist whose work draws strongly from her ancestral connections with the Karuk, Yurok, and Hupa peoples of the Klamath and Trinity Rivers in Northern California. Her colorful paintings are reflections of her cultural heritage and the landscapes of her ancestral homelands. Her work is a continuum, connecting past, present, and future with Earth and Spirit, synthesizing traditional designs with contemporary experiences, issues, and perspectives. Her colorfully illustrated books welcome youngsters (and their parents) from all cultures into the abundant world of Native California.
