C.Maxx Stevens (Seminole/Muscogee) is a visual storyteller whose deeply personal, eclectic constructions tell stories about places and people from her past. Working with “found objects” and such ephemeral materials as paper, wood, and hair, she creates art that has a dark, gritty quality that is both haunting and familiar. The 19 works selected for this solo exhibition—sculpture, installation, and prints—illustrate the complexities of the contemporary Native experience and address memory through cultural and personal symbols.
