November 21, 2014 Hello and Happy Friday! Most of you thought that today wasn’t coming, but here we are. We’re going to Oklahoma City to visit the Red Earth Museum. RED EARTH MUSEUM From the website: Red Earth, Inc. promotes the rich traditions of American Indian arts and cultures through education, a premier festival, a museum and fine art markets. History Red Earth, Inc. began in 1978 with the establishment of the Center of the American Indian, a museum dedicated to showcasing Native American arts. In 1987, a group of influential community and tribal leaders founded the Red Earth American Indian Cultural Festival to showcase Native American dance and art. The two groups merged in 1992 to create Red Earth, Inc., which is now one of the most respected organizations of its type in the United States. Red Earth hosts a wide collection of more than 1,400 Native American fine art, pottery, basketry, textiles, and bead work. They also feature acclaimed traveling exhibitions.   The 29th Annual Red Earth Native Cultural Festival will be held June 5-7, 2015 …

November 15, 2014 Hello and Good Morning. Saturday has come with gusto. This is, I should say part one of Where to Find Native American Art and we’re scouring across the US. Oregon History Museum: home to a vast array of Native American basketry, beadwork and carvings. Portland Art Museum: traditional carving, basketry, paintings, and sculpture from the Northwest tribes. Throughout the year the American Art Council hosts lectures and public displays by local and regional artists.  In the Pearl District of Portland, Ouintana Galleries has indigenous arts and artifacts you can check out. Oklahoma City has the Red Earth Museum, which features traditional and contemporary Indian painting, carving, pottery, and artifacts. There is free admission, educational programs to teach students the cultural diversity and the city histories of American tribes and serves as a resource center. Return back Wednesday to find more Indian American art. Have a wonderful weekend, and always be blessed! featured image courtesy of

November 1, 2014 Volume 2 / Number 11 featured image courtesy of I have to say that November is one of my favorite months. From where I am, the weather has become quite cold really quickly. I’m mean bundle up cold! November is Native American Heritage Month. There will be a few Spotlight Artists, along with Native American art of all forms. You’ll get to see a few museums that are dedicated to Native American art. I’m sure there are few or maybe more of you, including myself that have some Native American running in your veins. The competition from deviantART, What Does Your Art Journey Look like will end on Wednesday, November 5. I will have it posted, but as I’ve stated before, this is the last time you’ll see it! Lastly I will be make an announcement in a few weeks. Nothing to fret about, I assure you, Esquisses ain’t going nowhere! Thanksgiving is at hand!
