From the North Dakota Museum of Art
November 3-29, 2013
Dancing Dazzling Beads consists of work by today’s leading contemporary bead artist from across the United States and Canada. It is a rich, vibrant, and fun exhibition for the whole community. Visitors will be treated to both wall and floor pieces, and contemporary and work based in bead history. The history of beads is a fascinating history. Beads have been traded around the world for centuries. When White traders moved into the American West, they brought beads along, stashed away to be traded for pelts. Victorian women and folk artists always beaded but it wasn’t until the last few decades contemporary Western artists turned to beads. They recognized that through accumulation, beads and more beads could be amassed into works of art, making whole galleries dance with reflected light.
