EAC’s Washington Street Gallery will feature Malihkinuwi-Waponahkik (“In Maine Wabanaki Territory” in the Passamaquoddy/Maliseet language), a collection of Waponahki-inspired artwork by Norma “Randi” Marshall, in June.

Marshall is a member of the Passamaquoddy Tribe. She was raised on her mother’s ancestral lands at Sipayik, Maine and also has roots from her father’s clan of the Hidatsa and Mandan people of North Dakota. A painter and digital art creator, Marshall’s mediums are acrylic, oils, watercolors and an iPad. She draws inspiration from her ancestral heritage, life, and adventures with her husband; as well as her love for the various beautiful Waponahkik landscapes, the Maine environment that her maternal ancestors called home and traversed for 12,000 plus years. The focus on her heritage is also a teaching tool for herself to be aware of the history of her ancestors, how their lives were lived prior to colonization and after, their culture, their environments and ecology, and the people within the communities who continue carrying on traditions despite the initial setback of assimilation. It is a form of self-healing and expression.

 

The show is viewable during EAC events or by chance or appointment; email wsg@eastportartscenter.org to inquire.

Eastport Arts Center’s Washington Street Gallery exhibits local as well as state, national and international visual art.  Exhibitions include discussions and lectures pertaining to the exhibited work.  To fulfill the larger purpose of educating, engaging and entertaining the greater Eastport community concerning the visual arts, additional lectures and discussions will, from time to time, be offered.  The gallery is open during EAC events, or by chance or appointment, via email, to wsg@eastportartscenter.org
