New Art 2.0 is an exhibition of prints, many created by Eiteljorg Fellows and contemporary Native and Non Native artists. It is a blend of “op art,” landscape, political and environmental statements as well as portraiture. Approximately 90 limited edition prints will be on exhibit and available for sale with prices ranging between about $500 - $4000.  New Art 2.0 closes Feb. 8, 2015.

Vanessa Enos is an enrolled member of the Northern Cheyenne tribe in Montana. She is also of Walla Walla, Yakima, and Pima heritage. Enos moved with her family to the Umatilla Indian Reservation when she was nine and later graduated from Weston McEwen High School. Enos has an associate’s degree from the Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia and currently lives in the Pendleton area. She began visiting Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts at age 15. Crow's is a nonprofit organization aimed at providing opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development. In fact, the Eiteljorg produced New Art 2.0 through its partnership with Crow's.  Enos shares that while at Crow's, she observed, volunteered, and found opportunities to "play" in the studio.

I’ve seen other artists come in and watched them do their printmaking. I’ve learned throughout the years, and with [Frank Janzen - Crow's Shadow master printer] now here, I’ve definitely learned techniques I never thought you could do. It’s amazing.
