Indigenous Art 2021 will be running September 11 – November 20, 2021.
Meet Artist, Cody Houle
Cody Houle / Stalking Heron Art is an Anishinaabe artist from Southwestern Ontario, Canada. A self-taught painter, Houle began painting at the age of 31 after going through major bouts of depression. Painting gave him an outlet instead of holding everything in. Though drawn to abstract visuals it is the woodland paintings that resonate most for Houle and his sense of his culture. Growing up, Houle felt shame and guilt surrounding his Native identity; now, his art allows him to show pride and strength in being an Indigenous man. Houle believes it is important to share art to inspire hope and encourage anyone to create.
