SHERRY LEEDY CONTEMPORARY ART | 2004 Baltimore Ave. Kansas City, MO 64108 816.221.2626 | www.sherryleedy.com


The exhibition, Back Where They Came From, will focus attention on the depth and diversity of contemporary Native American artists and the works of art they create. Co-curated by gallery director, Sherry Leedy, and artist, Tom Jones (Ho Chunk), this exhibition will mark the gallery’s 32nd year and continues our commitment to exceptional artists working across media and boundaries. The 19 artists included in the exhibition embrace a diversity of themes ranging from the political to the personal. The heritage of cultural influence is seen from the vantage point of today, reinforced by the past, reinterpreted and reinvented through a wide range of materials including photography, lithography, silverwork, beadwork, birch bark constructions, drawing and collage. The exhibition, Back Where They Came From will reflect the arc of experience between makers, materials, concept and tradition as Native American art continues to shift, evolve and transform into a new unexpected aesthetic, informed by the past, influenced by the present and moving toward the future.
