Alex Ponca Stock at Richard Levy Gallery

Overview

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Color Relatives, a selection of beaded works by Alex Ponca Stock. This exhibit comprises abstract beaded broadcloth works, characterized by the use of colored glass beads arranged on colored wool.  As a member of the Osage Nation, she employs beadwork, a craft historically rooted in tribal ceremonial adornment on wool broadcloth, a form of currency between Osage people and early European traders.Trained as a painter and inspired by minimalism and colorfield artists, Stock brings these traditional materials into a contemporary context. Stock’s work has been exhibited by the Denver Art Museum, the First Americans Museum, and the Osage Nation Museum, among others. The artist currently lives and works in Santa Fe, NM.
