Made of Thunder, Made of Glass II: Continuing Traditions in Northeastern Indian Beadwork

The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University recently opened “Made of Thunder, Made of Glass II” on its campus north of Niagara Falls, New York. The exhibit “explores the intricate details and intimate meanings of Haudenosaunee, Wabanaki, and Chippewa beadwork through exquisite historic works and elaborate contemporary creations.”

There are more than 200 historic pieces, as well as beaded portraiture by contemporary artist Gerry Biron, and other contemporary artists. To see more of the work, there is an active Facebook page for the exhibition. I was in the area last summer. Shoot!
