Indigenous Art 2021 Artist, Jodi Vander Heide-Buswa

Welcome to Woodland Cultural Centre’s Indigenous Art 2021 Exhibition.

Established in 1975, this is one of the longest running multi-media exhibitions that provide artists an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work in a fine art gallery setting. WCC is pleased to announce the return of this annual Juried Exhibition and we can’t wait to share the selected works with the public. Indigenous Art 2021 will be running September 11 – November 20, 2021.


Meet Artist, Jodi Vander Heide-Buswa

I am a Seneca Nation Deer Clan currently living in Dunnville, ON. I have 6 children and I am currently working towards my Master’s Degree in Equity, Diversity, and Human Rights with a minor in Indigenous Studies. I do artwork and beadwork on the side to bring out my creative side. 

Artist Statement 

This purse is the first I’ve ever made. I spent many hours creating this beauty and it resembles resilience because I had really swollen and sore hands but I kept working and it helped heal me emotionally.
