Join us this Saturday at 1:30pm for an artist talk on the amazing history and endurance of Tuscarora beadwork with artist Grant Wade Jonathan.

Grant grew up at Tuscarora Reservation near Niagara Falls, NY. He was introduced to embossed (or raised) beadwork through his mother and is represented annually at the National Museum of the American Indian and Santa Fe Art Markets. In addition to his own artistic pursuits, Grant is passionate and knowledgeable about the Tuscarora Nation’s beadwork legacy and maintains a 2000 piece personal collection of antique Tuscarora beadwork. This collection has allowed him to revive old patterns (many of which belong to particular families or clans), techniques, and concepts that were in common use by prior generations and which he shares with the Tuscarora community. Through his art, lectures, conferences, and workshops Grant strives to protect and preserve the history and correct attribution of Tuscarora raised beadwork.

Saturday, August 17: Cayuga artist Dan Hill demonstrates the process of creating traditionally-inspired silver brooches. Hand crafted silver brooches have added a decorative element to Haudenosaunee men and women’s traditional outfits as far back as the 18th Century. At the height of their popularity over 200 brooches might adorn a single outfit. These masonic and military symbols, crosses, single and double hearted forms were European in origin but embraced and given new meaning and expression by Haudenosaunee.
