Lillian Pitt: Honoring My Ancestors
Lillian Pitt presents her newest artwork in Honoring My Ancestors, a solo exhibit opening at MAM in September. Pitt is celebrated
nationwide for making contemporary artwork in the deep tradition of Pacific Northwest Native American artists. Recent works in the exhibit include prints, masks, and a new series of Sally bags. Traditionally, a Sally bag was a woven basket used to gather roots, medicines, nuts, and seeds by Native American women of the mid-Columbia River region. The weaving technique is unique to this region with distinguishing motifs of human figures and animals. Created in blown glass and adorned with traditional shapes and symbols, Pitt's richly colored Sally bags honor the cultural legacy of her ancestors from the Wasco, Warm Springs, and Yakama nations as contemporary artworks.
