From program: "Ruth Cuthand's art...involves painting herself and her people into their own cultural tradition. Like a storyteller, she brings the tradition to life, and in the process revitalizes it." Exhibit curated by Cindy Richmond.
Historical note:Ruth Cuthand was born in Prince Albert, SK in 1954 and grew up near the Blood Reserve in Alberta. Her heritage is Plains Cree and Scots/Irish. Her Aboriginal culture and memories of her childhood experiences are often the inspiration for her art-making practice.
