Nicholas Galanin: The State of Being, Displaced
Nick Galanin, a Sitka-born Tlingit artist, understands that being part Alaska Native and part non-Native means that his world cannot be so clearly defined. Through his different mediums of art, such as video, monotype, prints, masks and paper, Nick expresses himself and the intertwined cultures in which he was raised. His exhibit may be viewed at http://museums.alaska.gov/online_exhibits/nick_galanin_2013.html.
