The Owens Valley Paiute Shoshone Cultural Center is opening Part II of the Great Basin Native Artists Exhibit.

As described on the event poster: “The commonalities within tribal communities are key motivators in indigenous art, utilizing cultural knowledge and lifeways to inspire them. The passion to be creative and express ideas gives the native artist an opportunity to strengthen, heal, and encourage community awareness.

“The Owens Valley Paiute Shoshone Cultural Center believes that recognizing and acknowledging community talent and crafts is a key piece to preserving the culture, tradition, and lifeways of the Nüümü (Paiute) and Newe (Shoshone) people. The Great Basin Native Artists (GBNA) is a collective of Indigenous artists living in or originally from the Great Basin areas of Nevada, California, Southern Oregon, Southern Idaho, and Utah.”

Hours for the art exhibit are 10 AM – 4 PM Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free.
