Art Show: Original Work by Rabbett Strickland & Leah Yellowbird
Wednesday, November 22, 2023
Rabbit, Bird & Bear is excited to co-curate a brand new exhibition with the Washburn Cultural Center. This show will help launch our future partnership as our gallery store is moving in the antique shop space next summer. This show will feature original works by both Red Cliff artist Rabbett Before Horses Strickland and Metis heritage artist Leah Yellowbird.
This is the first show this pair has done together and their mediums will balance the space nicely with Leah's traditional-contemporary style of Ojibwe florals and a large array of mediums including beadwork and quillwork.
Complimenting Leah's work in the second gallery room will be Rabbett Strickland with his vibrant indigenous-inspired oil paintings. His work has been influenced by European Renaissance and Baroque masters, including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Titian, Velasquez, Rubens and Leonardo, as well as by Ojibwe mythology oral history.
This exhibition opens November 8 with an opening reception held from 5-7pm on Friday November 10, and will remain up until December 30. We hope to see you all there to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity!
