Susan Calloway Fine Arts Opening Reception
On May 10, Susan Calloway Fine Arts hosted an opening reception for Poetic Visions, artworks by Breda Kingery. The artist was born into the Chickasaw Nation and educated in fine art, combining her rural Oklahoma background with international travel. Her paintings are mixed media, acrylic or oil, with occasional additions of mica and small found objects. As a founding member of Threads of Blessing International, she teaches textile design in workshops that encourage women to use their indigenous artistic skills. In 2007, she was appointed by the President of the United States to the board of trustees of the Institute of American Indian and Native Alaskans in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The exhibit runs through June 8.
