Tlingit artist to speak at Studium Generale

PORT ANGELES — “Culture is not stagnant,” said Alison O. Bremner, Tlingit artist.

“Through contact and the technological revolution Tlingit culture is constantly adapting, observing, and searching for its place in the world.”

Bremner will give a presentation on her current art and historical inspirations and preview new artwork during Peninsula College’s Studium Generale at 12:30 p.m. Thursday.

The free Zoom meeting will be at

The meeting ID is 896 1607 5652.

Bremmer was born and raised in Southeast Alaska, and is believed to be the first Tlingit woman to carve and raise a totem pole.

She has studied under master artists David R. Boxley and David A. Boxley in Kingston.

Painting, woodcarving, regalia and digital collage are a few of the mediums that she employs.

In addition to her contemporary art practice, Bremner is committed to the revitalization of the Tlingit language and creating works for traditional and ceremonial use.

Her work is included in the permanent collections of, among others, the Burke Museum, Seattle; Portland Art Museum, Oregon; Château Musée Boulogne-sur-Mer, France; Frye Art Museum, Seattle; and the British Museum in London.

The event is cosponsored by the ʔaʔk̓ʷustəƞáwt̓xʷ House of Learning, Peninsula College Longhouse, and is free and open to the public.
