The following images are representational of Jennifer White's award-winning work. Jennifer was an inaugural artist in the first Gathering of People, Wind and Water in 2013 and was invited back for the second show on Saturday, July 19 at Main Street Square in the heart of downtown Rapid City.
Jennifer says of her work:
"It is my honor to create work that leans toward the social responsibilities or irresponsiblities of modern American Indian life. The oppression of our forefathers is still great and apparent. It is these issues dancing with the pure beauty and true spirit of life and love that I strive to depict in my work. I believe there is a lot to be learned about American Indian culture and say what might not want to be heard, but it is my wish to portray these issues with memorable passion and love of my culture."
