Oscar Howe Lecture to Feature Artist from Montanas Fort Peck Reservation
Fogarty is a full-blood Assiniboine (Nakoda) and Sioux (Dakota) from the Fort Peck reservation in northeastern Montana. She will give an artist lecture about her work and career beginning at 7 p.m. on Sept. 15 at Farber Hall in Old Main.
As a master beadworker and porcupine quill worker, Fogarty has been considered the grand matriarch of traditional Plains artwork. In 1985, she entered the SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market and received best of show, an honor she repeated the two following years, something never done before at the market. Fogarty has participated in Indian Market for 30 years and received multiple other awards, including the SWAIA Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to American Indian art.
Fogarty has pieces in private collections as well as permanent collections in many museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Ralph T. Coe Collection), the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and the Joslyn Art Museum.
Her work was recently featured in the traveling international exhibition The Plains Indians: Artist of Earth and Sky and national exhibitions at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and the Denver Art Museum. She currently has a doll showing in an exhibit at the Fenimore Art Museum (Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Collection).
Thursday’s lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow in the Oscar Howe Gallery, Room 116 in Old Main. The Oscar Howe Memorial Lecture is one of the kickoff events to the 29th annual Northern Plains Indian Art Market weekend.
