AVA invites you to a night of enrichment and celebration as we join Robert Sahd for a discussion about R.C. Gorman, a Native American artist of the Navajo Nation referred to as "the Picasso of American Indian artists" by The New York Times,
A wonderful gift to AVA, Gorman’s Monarch displays 69 rich variations of color of vermillion, violet, blues, and more in the seated young Navajo woman contemplating a lovely monarch butterfly perched upon a stalk of bachelor buttons. This lovely image is 19" x 25" encased in a tasteful multi-wood frame 36" x 31".
Monarch is currently on display at AVA and available for bidding online at https://gormanatava.ggo.bid/bidding/package/13464518 through June 28th at 7pm.
This awe-inspiring gift to AVA marks the beginning of a new fundraising program which encourages supporters and art collectors to consider donating distinguished art items for auction to help support AVA's mission of enriching lives by creating the bridge between the visual arts and our community.
Viewers with an interest in learning more about AVA's Donated Art program can contact staff at 307-682-9133.
Join us for a "streaming event" on Tuesday, June 15 at 6pm to discuss the artworks and cultural impact of R.C. Gorman and to speak with Robert Sahd, representative for the R.C. Gorman estate and Navajo Gallery in Taos, NM.
Visit AVA in-person at 509 West 2nd Street in Gillette, WY or on ZOOM to participate in a fun night of education and celebration!
