Daina Warren
July 9 — August 6, 2005

Montana Slavey Cree artist Daina Warren explores her cultural identity through the use of traditional glass beading and hair headdresses.

According to Warren: “In most of these objects I wonder about how much is due to my own creative process, and what is intuitive and lives within my skin. I have a 96 year old Cree grandmother who is an exceptional traditional bead worker and well known for her skill. I was curious about her practice and wanted to find a connection to my family. Most of what I know comes from transference, the transference of knowledge, whether it be through institutions or the elders, the transfer of materials from ‘traditional’ to ‘contemporary’, the transfer of my birth family from their traditional territory to where and who I am now.”

Daina Warren hosted an ongoing open studio in the gallery for the month of July.
