Northern Arapaho artist Robert Martinez joins us as artist-in-residence the week of July 22–26. From 9 a.m.–3 p.m. each day, Martinez demonstrates his work and technique while chatting with visitors.
Raised on the Wind River Reservation of Wyoming, his Native heritage remains a constant inspiration and source of ideas for his work. The past and present resonate strongly in Wyoming and those historic and contemporary chords echo throughout his pieces. Much of Robert’s current work uses historic images, myths, and stories of the American West and Arapaho culture. Using intense vibrant color and contrasting shades of light and dark, he paints and draws striking forms that confront and engage viewers.
