    I’m from the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Oregon. I have been an artist most of my life. I have studied painting at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe, NM USA as well as fashion and textiles at Cambridge Regional College in England.

    Whitney Minthorn is an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Cayuse. In his photography, he works with and promotes Native models. In addition to his studies at IAIA, Minthorn has a certificate in photography and digital manipulation from Oregon College of Art and Craft.

    For many years, my art has tracked parallel courses, alternating between paintings that are firmly within the realist tradition and works that are less literal, leaning more toward the abstract. There are aspects of both approaches that I love.

    Don Gray grew up in rural Oregon. He began drawing and painting at a very young age. He is and was inspired by landscape and everyday people and life. Gray studied art at Eastern Oregon University; he exhibits his work in galleries and museums throughout the United States.

    My paintings and sculptures are reactions to contemporary landscapes and social environments. My perspective is informed by having grown up a Native person, born to parents of the boarding school generation, being born post the civil rights movement, and coming of age after the height of the American Indian Movement. These factors are at the core of the content of my work, the questions I struggle with that guide how I view the world around me.

    Painter and installation artist Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Band of Chocktaw/Cherokee, born 1972) received his bachelor of fine arts degree from the Art Institute of Chicago and a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art, London, in addition to studying briefly under Nambé Pueblo sculptor Ernest Mirabel. Gibson has participated in group and solo exhibitions in the United States and Europe and is a 2009 Eiteljorg Fellow.
