Opening Reception

NYSHEC 2022 will commence on Friday, October 29 at 5pm with an exciting collaboration with the Yager Museum of Art & Culture at Hartwick College. The Yager Museum, just down the road from SUNY Oneonta, will host a performance of “Mirror Klown (medicine for the people)” by artist Jason Medicine Eagle Martinez, who gave the following artist’s statement:

“My art process is about visualizing the spirit world. I am interested in how currently and historically humans have interpreted their reality through storytelling, creative communication and mark making. Each piece I make is the continuity of my own storytelling of awakening, neo-mythology and healing.

Spiritual practice, history, popular culture, and my indigenous heritage have shaped my works. The art conveys a fluidity between the esoteric space of my native tradition and that of modern theory and identity; their coexistence an expression of the way in which stories can both describe, heal, build, and rebuild identity.”

Parking at Hartwick College is unrestricted starting at 5pm on weekdays
