From Dunlop Art Gallery

Indigenous beadwork

The RPL Dunlop Art Gallery proudly represents Indigenous artists, and in 2021 alone acquired permanent or long-term works by four prominent Indigenous artists. 

Anishinaabe artist Jaime Black’s REDress installation is a visual reminder of the staggering number of women who are no longer with us. Through her work, Black draws attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Indigenous women and to evoke a presence through the marking of absence. These photographs can be viewed at Albert Branch. 

Two murals by renowned Saskatchewan artist Daphne Boyer, All my Relations and For Clémence, celebrate her Metis and Fransaskois heritage. These murals were displayed at Central Library and Sherwood Village Branch until April 2022.

Jeffrey Veregge’s Stark is installed in Regent Place Branch, Last Son is installed at Connaught Branch, and She’s Got it Where it Counts at Glen Elm Branch. Veregge combines references to popular comic icons with imagery of his S’Klallum (Port Gamble/Coast Salish) ancestors.
