Check out this season's featured artist, Tracie Tuck-Davis!
Tracie Tuck-Davis is a Chickasaw/Choctaw studio artist as well as a fourth generation Oklahoman. Tracie began studying art twelve years ago and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting. She is most interested in tribal ancient art and translating images in a contemporary manner. Tracie’s work involves taking ancient images found on pottery, breastplates, gorgets and other items recovered in tribal burial mounds and transforming them into various mediums like sculpture and printmaking. While producing her work, Tracie hears the chanting of her ancestors and feels a strong spiritual resonance with her patterns and motifs. This process, she believes, is a reconnection of the past that transmits to the future. Be sure to make a special visit to the Welcome Center from now until October 31st, to get an exclusive view of Tracie’s fabulous artwork on display!
