BROWNING, MONTANA: The Museum of the Plains Indian, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Indian Arts and Crafts Board, announces the opening of a special online exhibition, Land/Sky: featuring Terran Last Gun. The exhibition is available from the following site:
Terran Last Gun / Sah’kwiinaamah’kaa, an enrolled member of the Blackfeet Tribe, is a visual artist and printmaker who was born and raised on the Blackfeet Reservation, where the Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains. As a Piikani (Blackfeet) citizen within the Blackfoot Confederacy, he sees his art as a continuum of the ancient Native American narrative tradition. His artwork is a visual interpretation of nature, the cosmos, cultural narratives, and recollections of home in reduced geometric aesthetics and color harmonies.
He received an A.S. degree in Environmental Science from the Blackfeet Community College, Browning, Montana and his B.F.A. in Museum Studies and A.F.A. in Studio Arts from the Institute of American Indian Arts, Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is a recipient of numerous awards including: the 2020 First Peoples Fund Artist in Business Leadership Fellowship; 2018 Santa Fe Art Institute Story Maps Fellowship; and the 2016 Museum of Indian Arts and Culture Goodman Aspiring Artist Fellowship. He currently lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
