-ON LOAN FROM THE HERTIAGE CENTER AT THE RED CLOUD INDIAN SCHOOL
Native American art cannot be defined by one aesthetic, medium, or tradition. It is constantly evolving, reflecting the diverse cultures and experiences of Native artists themselves.
Over the last five decades, the Red Cloud Indian Art Show has captured that evolution—and honored the Native artists who continue to lead it.
Held on the Pine Ridge Reservation in western South Dakota, the Red Cloud Indian Art Show is the largest and longest-running Native art exhibition of its kind—and one of only a few held in an indigenous community.
Hundreds of prominent artists from tribal nations across North America have shared their work through the Red Cloud show, in categories ranging from painting and photography to beadwork and quillwork. But what sets the show apart is its inclusion of new and emerging Native artists who explore new mediums and perspectives. Their work continues to drive the evolution of Native art—and redefine its boundaries for the next generation.
-Riley Ruff, Alliance, NE
Riley Ruff is an Alliance NE native. She is only 19 years old, but the skill of her work extends far beyond her age. Riley's work centers around romantic imagery of the old west. The subjects have incredible detail while the backgrounds are fragmented into raw swathes of color. The blend of realism mashed against impressionism creates a dazzling new take on a traditional art form.
