Sarah McRae (Red Lake Nation) is an emerging artist who grew up in Minnesota. She received her BA in Art Education from Concordia College in Moorhead and her MFA in graphics from UW-Madison. Her artwork references traditional Ojibwe floral aesthetic in delicate and complex arrangements of elements and design. There is an ephemeral quality to her work that remembers traditional patterns in new ways that vibrate with life and possibility. McRae currently lives in Madison, WI, where she has been an art teacher at Velma Hamilton Middle School since 1996.
DG House (Cherokee Tribe of NE Alabama) has lasting memories of an earlier time spent in Minnesota’s northern wilderness. She now resides in Montana living along the Gallatin River. As a painter and photographer, she is always aware of the world around her. This is apparent in the animated animal subjects that are predominant in her work. A prolific artist, she has received numerous honors and awards, has exhibited around the country and is currently the guest artist in both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
