Artists in Residence bring arts to the community

by Emily Sabens | Aug 29, 2017

Each fall, a select group of artists from across the country descend upon the museum to provide exciting experiences for the local community. The Eiteljorg is excited to have four amazing artists in the lineup this fall. Artists in Residence work at the museum for three weeks at a time, meeting school groups, teaching workshops, doing demonstrations and sharing their art and culture. Each artist will also spend time doing outreach programs at area schools, libraries, community centers and universities.

Internationally recognized for his hand­crafted fine art, flutes and jewelry, Ramel has traveled to venues across Indian Country to share his improvisational traditional music, art and memories. Meet Ramel and learn about his work during open studio sessions on Sept. 9, 16 and 23, and hear a performance of his flute music on Sept. 17.

DG HouseDG House (Cherokee of Northeastern Alabama) developed a passion for the environment and wildlife as a child, when she spent large amounts of time camping with her family in her native state of Ohio. Fulfilling a lifelong goal, House traveled to Yellowstone National Park in the summer of 1981; it was there that her love of people, landscapes and the wildness converged with her Native heritage. During House’s 20-year career, her art has been featured in museum permanent collections across the country. Meet House, learn about her painting techniques and watch as she works during open studio sessions on Oct. 7 and 21.
