We are CLOSED Thursday September 30th in observance of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Our online store remains open and proceeds from online sales from the day will be donated to The Indian Residential School Survivor Society www.irsss.ca. You may also make a donation to them directly.
Our small gesture is to bring indigenous artists to the forefront of social media today. Shout out to the indigenous visual artists and makers so we may follow and learn more about each one. If you are an indigenous maker, please share your websites, art shows, events, and publications. We will see you! We are proud to stand behind you not just today but everyday.
We are now accepting applications for the 2022 Naess Gallery. March – December will feature indigenous curators and artists. Each exhibition will be scheduled for 6 weeks. Please submit your exhibition proposals to Beth Pederson
To those hurting from loss, we support the call for truth. We want a country proud of those who were here first. Your culture, your language is to be learned and celebrated. Your history is today and more present than ever. Canadians are educating themselves and learning that reconciliation is the process of healing relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians. It requires public truth sharing, apology and commemoration that acknowledges and redresses past harms. Building meaningful partnerships with Indigenous communities, including Indigenous worldviews in our everyday actions, and recognizing Indigenous sovereignty are all ways we can commit to this ongoing process.
