Lloyd Kiva New: Art

Fri, January 22, 2016Sat, December 31, 2016

Lloyd Kiva New: Art features nearly thirty paintings by Cherokee artist Lloyd Henri “Kiva” New (1916–2002) completed between 1938–1995. New is best known for fashion design and the development of innovative concepts in cultural based education for Native people. Extravagant handbags, dresses, and modern design are calling cards of New’s art career, but his two-dimensional works are not as well known. The paintings, from his personal collection and rarely shown in a museum or gallery, exemplify how Lloyd “Kiva” New viewed art. Beautiful landscapes, geometric abstractions, and realistic depictions of life in watercolor and oil are reflections of a humble man who enjoyed painting for himself. These paintings are an example of how New, famous fashion designer and entrepreneur, expressed his thoughts and feelings.
