“Return from Exile: Contemporary Southeastern Indian Art

Collier Museum, Naples, FL.

“Return from Exile: Contemporary Southeastern Indian Art,” features Seminole Jessica Osceola and 17 other Native American artists with ties to the Southeast exhibits at the Collier County Museum in Naples and will run through Jan. 15, 2016. The current issue of the Seminole Tribune reviews this exhibition with the theme removal, return and resilience. All of the artist’s ancestors were forced into exile after the Indian Removal Act of 1830. “Return from Exile” opened in August at the Lyndon House Arts Center in Athens, Georgia and will travel the country through 2017.

The 24-piece show includes paintings, printmaking, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, basketry and jewelry. Most of the artists are well established in their careers and have won prestigious awards for their work. Four of the top 11 major awards at the Santa Fe Indian Market in August 2013 were won by Southeastern Tribal members from Oklahoma, and all are featured in the exhibition.
