First Impressions

Although the First Friday Art Walk was cancelled due to cold weather, more than 100 people crowded into the Brick City Center for the Arts on January 5 for the opening of Jordan Shapot’s First Impressions exhibit.

“I hope this work inspires other local artists to do great things locally,” Shapot said of the collection of oil paintings based on the early 1900s photographs of Native Americans taken by Edward S. Curtis.

The event also featured Native American flute music by Frank Sunshadow Curtis, the great-great grand nephew of the photographer, and the Sioux-style teepee he constructed in the courtyard.
