Gallery Route One’s Visiting Artist Program presents Still Here by artist Jean LaMarr. LaMarr exhibited her work at Gallery Route One in the exhibition, Recent Work by 10 Northern California Indian Artists, in 1990.
Her artworks include paintings, prints, and installations that pay tribute to her cultural heritage, they also confront racist stereotypes of indigenous people in the United States. Her art is a “rejection of the idea of the vanished American Indian,” explaining that Native American people are a dynamically rich culture.
LaMarr is an internationally recognized artist, educator, and advocate with ancestral ties to both Western Nevada and Northern California. Her work has prompted several conversations about cultural stereotypes, colonization, and environmental justice.
