Exhibit Opening Reception
December 6 @ 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm CST
Join us for the exhibit opening reception of Akinomaage, Teaching from the Earth. Akinomaage is the Ojibwe word for what Vern Northrup seeks to do with his photography.
Using only the camera on his smart phone, Vern Northrup captures the setting of where he grew up, creating a nostalgia for those familiar with the area, and a curiosity for those who aren’t. He uses photography as a tool to educate both himself and the viewer about the rhythm of nature, the preservation of tradition, and the relationship between resilience and sustainability. Northrup recognizes the ability of the land to act as a narrator and uses photography to reveal the story in landscapes.
This exhibit will be on display December 6, 2019 thru February 28, 2020 in the Miikanan Gallery.
