Exhibit of works of Native American artist Gordon Coons of Ojibway and Ottawa Heritage. Exhibit includes paintings, hand-pulled prints plus creations utilizing Duck Tape . Come back to the 60s and view the Duck Tape expressions under black lights.

Gordon will be exhibiting the Ojibwa Woodland Art Style, created from the combination of Ojibwe petroglyphs (drawings or carvings on rocks) and images from birch bark scrolls. The images can also be identified as X-ray Vision. The inspiration for these images relies on Ojibwe clans and stories. The artist usually paints images with a heavy black outline and paints what is felt or perceived inside animals (or people). What is painted inside the animal or person represents a kind of spirit, a source of powers.
