Photographs of Powwow Exhibited at Gallery at FRCC-Westminster
Photographs of the Red Rocks Powwow of 2012 are on exhibit at the Visual and Performing Arts Gallery at Front Range Community College.
The photographer is Berndt Savig, a member of the art faculty at Red Rocks Community College. He studied art in Italy, at Parsons School of Design in New York City, and at the University of Colorado. He received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Northern Colorado and a master of fine arts from the University of Southern Mississippi with a major in painting and drawing and a minor in sculpture.
Savig’s photographs document the regalia of traditional Native American dances. The costumes are made by a community of people, and their design is determined by the style and historical context of the dance.
The exhibition runs through Oct. 10. The artist reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 26.
Gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Admission is free. The campus is an RTD bus stop, and free parking also is available.
