Betty LaDuke,Catch the Joy, 2018

Betty LaDuke’s career as an artist has spanned the globe focusing on concerns of the human condition. While often speaking to the trials that humans face, there is also a celebration of spirit present in her work. Never centralized or restricted by borders in understanding what it is to be human, LaDuke has traveled the world with an intensity of commitment to her subject. For Diversity, we have selected both original panels and giclee prints spanning five decades and five continents.

Join us in a reception for Betty LaDuke February 2nd, 5-8 p.m. during the Ashland First Friday Artwalk. Show runs January 24th, 2017- February 28th, 2018.

*Winter hours through February will be Wednesday-Saturday 11-5. 

Diversity will include new work from LaDuke’s project, Social Justice, which shines a light on current challenges facing Native Americans and immigrant populations. Work representing various projects from Africa, Asia, Europe and The Americas recognizes the diversity in how we love, live and die along with the universal expressions of grief, joy, dignity and hope.

Play Free (for All Children Everywhere), 1968

Beginning with the giclee print of Play Free (for All Children Everywhere), 1968, created during the Vietnam War Era to Catch the Joy as it Flies, 2018, we are excited to have prints from many of her projects in between. We have also included two of the original painted wood panels from the series of Standing Rock Totems .
