"Carl Gawboy is a National Treasure."
Quote by Fond du Lac Ojibwe citizen and artist Wendy Savage, Curator of AICHO's "New Paintings, Old Stories."
AICHO is beyond thrilled to host Bois Forte Band of Ojibwe citizen and Finnish American painter Carl Gawboy this March through May 2022 in our AICHO Galleries with a series of brand new – never-before-seen work created in 2020 and 2021! The exhibition will include a collection of over 30 watercolor, acrylics and ink washes that feature Anishinaabe and Finnish cultural life, landscapes and spiritual teachings. Also on display will be Carl's artist awards, his book/publications and visual accolades for the work that he has created.
AICHO Galleries will have a "New Paintings, Old Stories" art catalogue for purchase featuring a select set of Carl's new watercolors, biographical information on Carl, praise from fellow artist colleagues, and more at our Indigenous First Art and Gift Shop. More information to come on this.
In our mission to promote and support local, regional, and national Indigenous and diverse artists, AICHO Galleries will have a digital billboard featuring Carl Gawboy's painting announcing the exhibition on Central Entrance for the month of March 2022 as well as social media postings. Many of Carl's works will be for sale and sale transactions will be operated through our gift shop.
Join us in celebrating our local and national treasure, Carl Gawboy, by attending this culturally expressive and historic art exhibition.
Exhibition funded in part by The McKnight Foundation and Arrowhead Regional Arts Council.
