PORT ANGELES — Linley Logan of the Onondowaga/Seneca Tribe, the featured artist at the Peninsula College Gallery of Art in the Pirate Union Building, will speak about his work at the Studium General from 12:35 p.m. to 1:25 p.m. Thursday.
The free program will be in the Little Theater at the college at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.
Sponsored by the Peninsula College House of Learning Longhouse, Logan has been the featured artist in the PUB Gallery of Art since Oct. 24.
The exhibit, “Indigenous Intrinsic Manifestations,” will be on view until Thursday.
Logan is a multidisciplinary artist, designer and cultural consultant for the tribe.
“My creative language reflects the environment that contributes to the experience of our life’s journey,” Logan said.
“The diversity of these experiences are complimented by a broad range of traditional, natural, social, political, economic and lived perspective interpreted creatively.”
Logan said that growing up in a traditional community has made him confident in his Seneca identity.
“I am confident in not having to identify myself through my art based on the strongest stereotypical or romantic images that infer Native identity,” he said.
“I can go beyond perceptions of the typical artistic identity espoused because I know who I am, but I know I am merely on the cusp of more reality.”
