Tradition & Innovation

Dawn Spears at Hera Gallery

Over a dozen artists from Nova Scotia to Maryland took part in this joint effort between the Hera Gallery and Exeter’s Tomaquag Museum, dedicated to preserving and promoting indigenous culture. Subtitled “Artists of the Eastern Woodland Tribes,” the show features a variety of media but leaves more questions than answers. There’s not a ton of information provided about many individual works, some of which date back to the early nineties, so outsiders unfamiliar with Native (primarily Narragansett) cultures have little idea what to make of a cradleboard, a beaded top hat, a Catholic saint sculpted from a moose antler, or a woven image of yellow corn.
