Last week, the Lander Art Center hosted an opening for its second annual Native American art exhibit. The show runs through December 20 and boasts more than 50 artists, most of them from the Wind River Indian Reservation. One artist in the exhibit is Al Hubbard, a 42-year-old Navajo and Arapaho artist who says traditional Native American images are fine, but Hubbard says he’s more interested in using pop art and other contemporary styles to express his ideas about tribal history and spirituality. You can see Al Hubbard and many other Wind River artists’ work at the Lander Art Center, Old Town Coffee in Lander and at the Lander Public Library. The exhibit runs through December 20.
