Artist Exhibition: "Shadows of the Imagination"


Opening Reception Saturday April 14th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Main Library
OFPL is honored to present the creations of Aaron Yazzie throughout the month of April at the main Library. Mr. Yazzie was born in Gallup, New Mexico but originates from Bááhááli, New Mexico. He is Diné (Navajo) and his clans are Two-Who-Came-To-The-Water and is born for the Towering House Clan.

Mr. Yazzie attended the University of New Mexico and eventually transferred to the Institute of American Indian Arts in the fall of 2015 to pursue a B.F.A in Studio Arts. Aaron’s primary choice of medium is two-dimensional, which encompasses techniques of drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, screen printing and mixed media. His additional practices include weaving, writing, ceramics and photography. By layering intricate patterns, organic forms, vibrant palettes, and gestural mark-making, Yazzie creates dynamic images that are inspired by nature, memory, culture, mysticism, and the metaphysical. His most recent awards include participating in the Chaco Canyon Heritage Project Artist Residency in 2016 as well as being nominated as a Site Scholar as part of the Site Santa Fe Scholar Program in 2017. Aaron will be graduating from IAIA in the spring of 2018.
