Paintings of Indigenous dancers featured at Gallery at the Armory in Park Rapids

The Gallery at the Armory located on 203 Park Ave. South in Park Rapids is featuring portraits of Indigenous dancers in their regalia in June and July.

A "meet the artist" event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 29 with an artist talk by Pam Edevold from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Learning about how the red dress worn by the first woman who modeled for Edevold, Rosalina Hunt, symbolizes endangered Indigenous women was her inspiration for doing a series of paintings of Indigenous people in their regalia.

Regalia in American Indian culture refers to clothing, accessories, and adornments that are significant for cultural and religious reasons. It is worn during traditional ceremonies and activities including pow wows.
