Feather News


The TseTse Art Gallery's opening for their Connecticut Indian art exhibit was on Friday.

Wombayomuks told us, "There was a steady stream of people throughout the evening at the Tsetse Gallery's opening of The exhibit Celebrating Connecticut's Native American People. William Donehey (Mohegan) read several poems from his collection. The Chairman of the Corporate board, Mark Roberts was presented a Native American talking stick to use at the many meetings he attends. The gallery was full of many Native American pieces of art, photography, carved gourds and many ceremonial creations."

Mohegans R.J. Russell, Bill Donehey, Lori Labrecque and Charlene Harris displayed some of their work.

The exhibit runs through July 11, 2009. The final night will feature a closing ceremony aligned with native american tradition. More information on the closing ceremony will be posted on the Feather News. The gallery is open Wednesday through Friday Noon till 6 p.m. and Saturday from noon till 3 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment.
