“On Turtle’s Back: Holly Wilson” exhibited at Pauly Friedman Art Gallery at Misericordia University
Autumn is a time to celebrate homecomings, and for Native American artist Holly Wilson, exhibiting her artwork in the ancestral homelands of the Delaware-Lenape has been a meaningful journey. The Pauly Friedman Art Gallery will be hosting “On Turtle’s Back: Holly Wilson,” an exhibition of photography, installation pieces and assemblages of cast wax, sculpted metals, and cut logs. This exhibition is free and open to the public and runs through Tuesday, October 11.
The public is invited to a free presentation by Holly Wilson about her work on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Monday, October 10, from 5:30 pm-7:00 pm. Kas Williams, Associate Vice President for Mission Integration and Institutional Diversity, will give the University Welcome. RSVP to Lalaine Bangilan Little at (570) 674-6250 or email@example.com. “On Turtle’s Back” is part of a series celebrating Native American Heritage held in collaboration with Misericordia’s Environmental Studies Program, Directed by Linda Auker, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biology at Misericordia University.
The title, “On Turtle’s Back,” is a reference to a traditional creation myth in which the Delaware People survived flooding rains by climbing on the back of a turtle. Wilson’s artwork incorporates narratives stemming from her heritage as Delaware and Cherokee Native American.
