“Indigenous Expressions,” a collection of recent illustrations by David Ben White of the Oglala Lakota Nation, opens in the Watermark Art Center’s Miikanan Gallery from Dec. 6 through Feb. 25, 2022.
White’s work explores Indigenous art, culture and traditions and is influenced by stories passed forward from Anishinaabe, Lakota and other tribal nations. A self-taught artist, White uses symbolism and color to interpret stories, traditions and dreams in unique and complex ways.
Watermark galleries are free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 505 Bemidji Ave. N. in Bemidji. For more information, visit watermarkartcenter.org or call 218-444-7570.
Masks are required for all indoor visitors.
