The Sheldon Jackson Museum is pleased to announce the opening of Sanctuary on Saturday, February 26 at the museum. The second Solo Show Exhibition in the museum’s Alaska Native Solo Show Exhibition Series, Sanctuary, is an exhibition of masks and painted works on wood and canvas by Allie High (Tsimshian, Haida, Alutiiq).
According to High, her work is a direct reflection of her Tsimshian, Haida,
and coastal Alutiiq cultural background. Her artist statement describes her goal as building “upon traditional art symbols and motifs to further define the contemporary world and share the beauty of Alaska’s diverse cultures through the mediums of glass, metal, wood and printmaking.”
The Sheldon Jackson Museum invites the general public to visit the temporary exhibit and to attend the online opening reception and artist talk via Zoom on February 26 at 3 pm.
