ART | "Beaded Birds and Beasts"


SUNY Geneseo's Lederer Gallery will feature two concurrent exhibitions of Native American works through October 7. Focusing on pieces created between 1880 and 1930, "Beaded Birds and Beasts" will showcase Iroquois beadwork, and will display decorated objects like pincushions, purses, urns, whisk broom holders, and needle cases. The second exhibition features three contemporary Native American artists: weaver Carrie Hill; painter and filmmaker Peter Jemison, who is also the director of Ganondagan State Historic Site; and Natasha Smoke Santiago, a ceramist and painter.

"Beaded Birds and Beasts" and the group show will be on display through October 7 at SUNY Geneseo's Lederer Gallery (Brodie Fine Arts Building, room 203, 1 College Circle, Geneseo). Gallery hours are Wednesday and Thursday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. An opening reception will be held Wednesday, September 2, at 5 p.m. There will also be lectures on Native American art held on September 2, September 14, September 21, and October 1.
