Native American Exhibition @ Red Door Art Gallery

Native American Exhibition flyer.jpg

Event Link: http://www.reddoorgallerywahpeton.com/

Event Phone Number: 701-591-1010

Artists exhibiting art in this exhibit include: Rita Erdrich, Paul Azure, Pat Gourneau, Howard Gourneau, Alec Erdrich, Denise Lajimodiere, Lise Erdrich, Eliza Erdrich, Angela Erdrich, Aza Abe, Heid Erdrich, Jules Burke, and Laura Youngbird.

Rita and Ralph Erdrich met in Belcourt, ND on the Turtle Mountain Reservation where she was born. Eventually, they bought a house on seventh street in Wahpeton. Wahpeton was an excellent place for the children to grow up with plenty of opportunities for play and education. As the children grew up, Rita and Ralph saw that the girls had talent as writers and artists and the boys were active in sports at school and many summer activities.

Rita attributes her paternal grandmother for passing on the gift of art to generations. Even great, great, great grandchildren are showing the gift of artistry.

A watercolor mixed media completed by Rita won Best of Show, as well as First Place in contemporary art at the Bemidji Art Expo in 1995. This painting is on display at the Red Door Art Gallery and will be displayed at the artists’ reception on Thursday, October 10.

 Often thinking about how our parents and grandparents have passed their genetic attributes for art, Rita is struck with a sense of wonder to think of how her paternal grandparents who roamed the plains following the buffalo trails now have descendants with degrees from Harvard, Dartmouth, John Hopkins, Stanford, UND, and NDSU.

“My family put together this exhibit to honor our heritage, both Native and German.” Rita said. “Because we are grateful for all we have in talent and activity. Thank you.”

Rita Erdrich serves on Three Rivers Arts Council, as well as on Collections Committee at Red Door Art Gallery.
