January 22–February 22, 2024

Multi-media artist Holly Wilson (Delaware Nation, Lenape, and Descendent of the Delaware Tribe of Indians) creates figures as her storytellers, conveying stories of the sacred and the precious, capturing moments of our day, vulnerabilities, and strengths. The stories are, at one time, both representations of family history and personal experiences. Wilson’s work reaches a broad audience, allowing the viewer to see their own personal connection. She works in various media, including bronze, paint, encaustic, photography, and clay.
