SANTA FE – David-Alexander Hubbard Sloan, the Institute of American Indians Art Museum of Contemporary Native Art’s current Local Artist in Residence, will give a talk at 12 noon and his studio will be open to the public on Saturday, March 4, 2017 from 12 noon – 4 p.m.
David-Alexander Hubbard Sloan (Navajo) was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Sloan works in the media of painting, printmaking, and jewelry. He received a Bachelor of Arts in 2-Dimensional Studio Arts with a minor in Environmental Science from the University of Arizona in 2003. He continued studying art at Santa Fe Community College, the Institute of American Indian Arts, and Poeh Cultural Center. As his neo post-modern works facilitate his Navajo culture, he also uses his practice to express preservation and respect of nature and ecology. “I think my creative ideas look to both Navajo and Indigenous people’s relationship with the environment which is what we are really all about,” says Sloan.
Sloan was featured in ARTiculations in Print: David Sloan T’ah aniiłtso Yéé’bii’ Neiikai (Endangered Species) at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native arts. He currently exhibits in local New Mexico galleries, has participated in SWAIA’s Santa Fe Indian Market for over ten years, and currently teaches silk-screening. This residency will run from November, 2016 – March, 2017.
