Rebecca is the recipient of a grant award. Aug 15, 2017 for Advancing Artist – “Exploration with Cold Wax and Oil Paint” from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council .
This project will further her art skills and challenge current confines of oil painting with the addition of cold wax medium mixed in with the oil paint. She will produce new 2-dimensional work as she discovers and explores — at times adding 10-20 individual layers of cold wax and oil paint that are buried, unearthed and found thru the process of introducing and experimenting with new tools for mark making. The exhibit will be held at the Paradise Center for the Arts.
RMPBS documentary (RED POWER ENERGY)
Produced by Lisa Oklens includes (5) of my paintings.
It is an honor and privilege to be included in this important topic confronting Native Americans at this time of history.
As proud as I am that my paintings were selected to punctuate portions of this film, it is the greater message for all of us to consider. The film gives the perspective of both the pro-energy alliance within the Native American tribes and the point of view from tribe members who are against mining of natural resources on their land. This affects us all, not just Native Americans as this very debate continues over mining in our National Parks.
Well worth watching – Reb
