EXHIBITING JAN 4 - FEB 8
Bryan Douglas Parker and Molina Parker, Rapid City, SD
As a child growing up outside Tulsa, Oklahoma, artist Bryan Parker was constantly drawing. After high school, craving direction, Bryan enlisted in the Army. He spent 14 months deployed in Iraq, but he never forgot his love of art and self-expression. While still serving in a combat zone, Bryan bought a video camera and began documenting his experience on film. Over a decade later he is an acclaimed painter and graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts. He lives and works in Rapid City alongside his wife Molina Parker, an award-winning Lakota bead artist. In 2015 Bryan was honored with the Br. CM Simon, S.J. Award for his painting Tatanka’s Dream, which is featured on the 2016 Red Cloud Indian Art Show poster. We spoke with Bryan about his path to becoming an artist and what the future holds.
