LAKOTA LEDGER DRAWINGS
from the Amidon Ledger Book
October 2 - November 2
John Molloy Gallery is pleased to present Lakota Ledger Drawings from the Amidon Book.
This series of drawings, done by three different artists in graphite and colored pencil on ledger, date to the 1880’s, showing life in those times in the style particular to Plains ledger art. ->
The Muscogee (Creek) people who were originally located in what is now the state of Georgia walked The Trail of Tears with the Cherokee to what is now Oklahoma beginning in 1830. This bag pre-dates that journey. It descended in an Oklahoma land run family until recently who had purchased it from the descendants of the original owner generations ago. It is a classic piece of Native American Art, its rarity on a par with its beauty.
