Don Bailey’s “Spirits Known and Unknown”

March 5 | 6:00 pm - March 28 | 9:00 pm

Don Bailey First Thursday at Gallery 114

At Gallery 114, March 5 – March 28, 2020

Spirits Known and Unknown presents the work of Gallery member artist Don Bailey. a painter and mixed-media visual artist known for his complex, richly colored compositions. An enrolled member of the Hoopa Valley Tribe, Bailey was raised on the Hoopa Valley Reservation in Northern California.
Bailey samples the images of archival photographs and other artists’ work, and layers them with images of traditional native design and landscapes real and imagined. In doing so, he tells original stories that shake up (mis)understandings of (Indian) art and history.

In this show, Bailey is joined by fellow Native American guest artists Lillian Pitt and Annette Jackson. Using different media, and their individual perspectives, the three artists each worked alongside the spirits of their ancestors to create contemporary retellings of traditional stories and histories.
