7: Professional Native Indian Artists Inc.
Thursday, June 19 to Sunday, July 27
The Gallery Shop presents an exhibition and sale of works from the Wahsa Gallery.
Opening reception June 19, 2014 6pm-9pm.
Many of the works in this show were selected from the collection at the Wahsa Gallery, which opened in 1976 when Gary Sherbain purchased the gallery from Daphne Odjig and Chester Beavon. Continuing in the tradition initiated by Odjig, the Wahsa Gallery highlights the works of Canadian Woodland Aboriginal artists. Odjig suggested the Ojibway term Wahsa; which literally translates to “far away” but in the vernacular of the mid-seventies means “far-out.”
