Opening reception for "Spirit Lines"

The Museum at Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College will open a new exhibit, Spirit Lines: Helen Hardin Etchings, on Wednesday, April 4th, with a free public reception from 5:00-7:00 pm.

Having emerged from the 1970s and 80s as a significant contemporary artist, Helen Hardin paved the way for other Native woman artists breaking out of Indian traditionalism.

This exhibit features twenty-three copper plate etchings spanning Hardin’s work from 1980-1984, uniquely translating her mixed ethnicities’ traditional symbology while using modern techniques and interpretation. Always intent on recalling her ancestral heritage, she signed her work in her Tewa name, Tsa-sah-wee-eh, meaning Little Standing Spruce. She continued to create works during a multi-year battle with breast cancer, completing her final etching, Mimbres Kokopelli, before she passed in 1984.

The Center of Southwest Studies is proud to display this beautiful exhibit throughout 2018.
