This is the first show this pair has done together and their mediums will balance the space nicely with Leah’s traditional-contemporary style of ojibwe florals and a large array of mediums including Beadwork, quillwork. Complimenting Leah’s work in the second gallery room will be Rabbett Strickland with his vibrant indigenous-inspired oil paintings. His work has been influenced by European Renaissance and Baroque masters, including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Titian, Velasquez, Rubens and Leonardo, as well as by Ojibwe mythology oral history.

This exhibition opens November 8 with an opening reception held from 5-7pm on Friday November 10, and will remain up until December 30. We hope to see you all there to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity!
