Indigenous Art 2021 Artist, Sara General

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, Sara General

Shé:kon! My name is Sara General. I belong to the Turtle Clan and the Mohawk Nation and I live in the community of Six Nations of the Grand River on Turtle Island with my husband and three children. I’m a writer, an artist, a researcher and a language learner.  

My art is inspired by my lived experiences as a Haudenosaunee woman, and my ongoing learning about my people’s oral histories, legends and stories. I have a deep love for forests, trees, mountains, rivers and streams, and I often find my work exploring the wonder of such spaces.  

I am fond of drawing people outdoors in quiet moments of peace and contemplation, where despite whatever else is going on in their lives, they can draw strength from the relationships they have, both in their homes and with the natural world. My work is primarily digital, but I also work with watercolours and acryla gouache.
