Two Row-Inspired Art Exhibit in Albany

New artworks by MaryK Weeks debuted at The Daily Grind, 204 Lark Street, Albany, NY, on Friday, April 4. The exhibit will be up at least through early May.

The acrylic paintings and mixed media collage are infused with the spirit of the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign begun in 2013. The campaign was initiated by the Onondaga Nation (Haudenosaunee) in partnership with its non-indigenous neighbors.

The artist became energetically charged at the Two Row flotilla launch on the Hudson River in Rensselaer and at commemorations of the Tawagonshi Treaty of 1613, an agreement to honor the Earth, at Sage College in Troy and in lower Manhattan. It is her hope that the power of native heart to bridge time, space and culture be felt through the exhibited images.
