The Unchosen Ones: Portraits of an American Pastoral – R.J. Kern

RECEPTION & Book Launch Jan 20. EXHIBIT Jan 13 – Mar 25. Four years after “The Unchosen Ones”, R. J. Kern re-photographed many of the subjects of the original series. In some cases, the animal and its handler are photographed together again. In other cases, the child has moved on and replaced the animal with some new pursuit; a tractor, a chicken, a fishing pole.

RECEPTION Jan 14, 2 – 4pm. EXHIBIT December 8- extended to February 25, 2023. The artwork of the local Native grassroots organization “Manidoo Ogitigaan” Or Spirit Garden, reflects their desire to revitalize art forms and cultural knowledge in a meaningful way that bridges gaps in order to build lasting relationships and a cultural legacy. To protect and preserve resources for generations to come, all materials were gathered in a manner akin to the original inhabitants of the land and processed in a way that is not harmful.
