Though historically it has been difficult for contemporary Native American artists to find acceptance and inclusion within the often exclusionary world of the fine arts, Wisconsin artists are playing a prominent role in changing that.
Working in glass and beadwork, Kingsbury and Lee share a fascination with letters and language, from the physicality of the alphabet to the mysterious process of translation.
Raised beadwork has powerful cultural and historic meanings for the Oneida Nation.
