From April 22nd through June 10, 2017, the A.D. Gallery in Locklear Hall hosted a traveling exhibition titled “Re-Riding History: From the Southern Plains to the Matanzas Bay.” The exhibition featured works by 72 contemporary native and non-native artists who responded to the events surrounding the 1875-1878 capture, relocation and imprisonment of 72 Plains Indian warriors at Fort Marion, St. Augustine, Florida.
An exhibition catalog Re-Riding History: From the Southern Plains to the Matanzas Bay (Carlisle, PA: The Trout Gallery, 2018) with essays by Emily Arthur, Phillip Earenfight and Nancy Marie Mithlo was recently published. The catalog discusses Professor Sanderson's Buffalo Scout, After Arrow, which includes stone lithography, digital imagery, and drawing. As a child in rural Kansas, he regularly passed a buffalo ranch and learned about its history. This image is informed by oral tradition and text-based traditions.
