“Generations,” a new exhibit on view at downtown Oklahoma City’s Red Earth Museum, has been extended through April 2013.  The exhibition features the varied and unique artistic styles of several generations of family members from six Oklahoma families. 

            “Generations” is funded in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council and features original works of art from some of Oklahoma’s most respected artistic families including the late Doc Tate Nevaquaya and his sons Calvert Nevaquaya and Tim Nevaquaya (Comanche Nation of Oklahoma); Iris Eby (Creek), her niece Susan Howard (Creek) and her daughter Rachel Howard (Seminole); and the late Tillier Wesley (Creek) and his son Micah Wesley (Creek).

Also featured are Sharron Ahtone Harjo (Kiowa) and her daughter Tahnee Growingthunder (Kiowa/Muscogee/Seminole); Brent Greenwood (Chickasaw/Ponca), his children Anevay Greenwood (Chickasaw/Ponca/Otoe) and Me-Way-Seh Greenwood (Chickasaw/Ponca/Otoe); and Gordon Yellowman Jr (Cheyenne), his wife Connie Hart Yellowman (Cheyenne) and their daughter Cristina Yellowman (Cheyenne).  The featured artists in the show have an impressive array of awards from major art shows and competitions throughout the United States including many Red Earth art competition award recipients.

The Red Earth Museum is open free to the public Monday through Friday and Saturday by appointment at 6 Santa Fe Plaza next to the historic Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City.  Visit www.redearth.org or call (405) 427-5228 for additional information.
