Paintings, sculptures and fabric art by members of the Tiger family and other Native American artists will be for sale at Paseo Gallery One during a show that starts Friday and continues through Jan. 2.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Tiger family’s Legacy Cultural Learning Community, a Muskogee-based foundation designed to teach Native culture to children.
Dana Tiger and her daughter, Hvresse Christie Tiger, 25, and son Lisan Tiger Blair, 23, all of Muskogee, will be exhibiting their work together for the first time in an Oklahoma City gallery. Dana Tiger’s work has been featured for years at the Red Earth Festival.
“I learned about the Paseo Arts District a long time ago, and always admired it,” said Dana Tiger, who paints watercolors of subjects she describes as “strong women.”
“I’m so excited that I get this opportunity to be there, with my children,” she said.
Hvresse Tiger draws and paints portraits of “youthful, fashionable women,” her mother said. Lisan Blair is a sculptor.
The family will greet visitors from 6 to 9 p.m. opening night, which is the First Friday Gallery Walk, and from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at the gallery, 2927 Paseo.
Dana Tiger said she looks forward to talking to fans of her family’s work and all Native American art. Tiger is the daughter of Jerome Tiger, whose work became internationally known even though he painted professionally for only five years before his death at age 26.
