Event Details

“We are thrilled to announce the Opening Reception of Cedar
Sage & Sweetgrass’s exhibit at the Anvil Center!

Come out to support Indigenous Artists on Thursday, June 20th,
from 6:00pm – 8:00pm! 🥳🤩 Meet the
artists and enjoy a performance by Derek “Manik1derful” Edenshaw.

Derek is an Indigenous multidisciplinary creative. He became well
known for his hip hop and spoken word performances but has since expanded into
the visual arts, film and television world. He is the premier knowledge keeper
on the Native Hip Hop movement and is known to deliver heart wrenching
performances both locally and abroad.

Cedar Sage & Sweetgrass seeks to encourage and promote young
Indigenous Artists. We created Cedar Sage & Sweetgrass with the goal of
giving Indigenous Artists a forum where they could show their best art, connect
and encourage one another.

This exhibit is entitled “Under My Wing”. Taken under the wing
means protection and keeping warm and dry, generally showing the ropes,
coaching and nurturing. It’s a reference to birds, who when they perceive
danger, gather their chicks together and cover them with a wing.

Artists featured in “Under My Wing” include Maryanne
Lindberg-Landrie, Pat Calihou, James Groening, Sheila Rae Lowe, Chantelle
Trainor-Matties, Ryan Hughes, Jerry Whitehead, and Feature Artist Ronald George

We hope to see you there! 😊
