PERRYSBURG - "Matika Wilbur: Indian Enough," an exhibit of photographs, is now on display at River House Arts, 115 W. Front St.
The Seattle-based artist will talk about her work at the gallery on May 16 at 7 p.m. The exhibit continues through June 10.
The show features selections from three of Wilbur's essays including We Are One People- character study portraits of Coast Salish Elders; iHuman - images of Swinomish tribal members interwoven with sacred cedar bark; and We Emerge- a photographic meditation on the historical and prevailing stereotypes of Native Peoples in American popular culture.
Indian Enough is the first in a series of exhibitions River House Arts is hosting in recognition of the 200th Anniversary of the battles that occurred in this region during the War of 1812. These military events changed U.S. policy towards indigenous peoples of North America, and ended of any promise for a sovereign nation of Native Americans.
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call (419) 874-8900.
