Into the Light

Lakota quill-and-beadwork patterns, the distinctive shape of moccasin toes, the strong graphic lines of ledger paper, all these and other American Indian motifs echo in the meticulously executed paintings of Dyani White Hawk. Originally from Madison, Wis., the Sicangu Lakota artist has been developing her career in both the Midwest and the Southwest, where she won awards at the prestigious Santa Fe Indian Art Market in 2011, 2012 and 2013. A recipient of a 2013-14 McKnight fellowship in visual arts, she also designed a 25th anniversary Pendleton blanket for the American Indian College Fund. The range and variety of her work in paintings, prints and textiles testify to a well-trained talent on the rise. Her new work is embellished with beads, ledger paper, gold leaf and other materials that amplify the rich history and traditions of American Indian art and design. Mary Abbe
