Robert Taylor

May 4 – August 25, 2018

The Oklahoma artist was named the Distinguished Visiting Artist at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma, Norman in fall 2017. A portion of the artist's new work will travel to Nebraska. A self-taught artist of Native descent, Taylor is best known for his usage of iconic symbols and manipulation of proportion seen often in the hands and feet. His symbolic paintings challenge the notion that American Indian art should adhere to any one style.

Rubendall Artist in Residence Henry Payer

Lower-level gallery
March 2 - June 30, 2018

Henry Payer is a Ho-Chunk multidisciplinary artist who works primarily with collage and mixed media to create bold and contemporary narrative compositions. His works reference the altered landscape through Indigenous cartographic methods of “picture-writing” with traditional aspects of spatial representation and symbolism combined with European modernist models of cubism, spatial distortion and collage. Each work offers a visual narrative of symbols and appropriated voices from American consumer society that reconfigures history, the landscape or the identity of a portrait. Henry represents the work of a new generation of artists seeking to expand the range and voice of their visual and cultural representation, while attending to forms of tradition.
