Earth Consciousness & Cultural Revelations

Alyssa Hinton’s mixed media work Earth Consciousness & Cultural Revelations is currently on display in the Michael S. Currier Gallery. The show runs from October 8 through December 22, 2017. There will be an opening reception during Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 8th from 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Earth Consciousness & Cultural Revelations draws upon powerful concepts of indigenous people, which revolve around a holistic understanding of the universe, the human connection to the universe, and relationship to the self. These concepts are found through representations of animals, elements, earth and sky denoting a reawakening to Native American philosophy.

“As a visual artist, I work in a variety of mixed media combinations ranging from painting, to collage, to digital composite, to assemblage and appliquéd fibers. All of these approaches address parallel themes of Native American cultural reawakening and human kinship with the natural environment. My work illustrates the organic beauty I find in the elements and invokes the concept of transformation, often using southeastern Mound culture designs and concepts.”

Alyssa Hinton attended The Putney School and is the granddaughter of Founder Carmelita Hinton.
