Judy DeRosa is one of nine artists being featured in the current exhibition: KINDRED. She is an Echota Elder and has made a practice of sharing Native stories through her beautiful works of art. Spiritual narratives are interwoven with totems, symbols, and visual metaphor in her paintings leaving the viewer wanting to know more about the context and the stories that inform the magnificent compositions.

Join us for an afternoon of deep connection between nature, artist, The Universe, and The Ancestors. This event is FREE and open to the public. Best suited for those 12 and up, but all ages are welcomed.
