The Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University will open the new year with the exhibition titled “Ric Gendron: Rattlebone,” featuring paintings from the artist’s 30-year career, as well as historic and contemporary cultural objects from the artist’s family. The exhibition runs through April 2nd.
Gendron, an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, was born on the Colville Reservation in Northeastern Washington and grew up in Coulee Dam and Spokane. His mother was a member of the Umatilla Tribe and his father was a Colville Tribe member.
“For thirty years, Ric Gendron has been quietly and intensely creating a deeply imaginative, sincere, culturally authentic, approachable body of work – beautiful moving paintings,” said Ben Mitchell, the exhibition’s curator.
