This fall, the National Eagle Center’s Watershed Gallery is showing the work of southern Minnesota artist Foxfeather R. Zenkova in an exhibition titled “Animal Totem: Exploring the Human-Animal Connection.”
The exhibit, on display through January, includes a variety of original nature and culture-inspired works, including tribal-style drums, theatrical masks, themed totem prints, and more. Zenkova’s art features bright colors, bold stylings, and rich detail.
“It’s so refreshing to see an artist that pushes herself to work with different subject matter and mediums,” said Anna Christenson, Watershed Gallery curator at the National Eagle Center. “It’s apparent that Zenkova studies cultures of the world and is actively incorporating her research with her own unique artistic style.”
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 13, at 5 p.m. at the National Eagle Center. The artist will be on-hand to talk with visitors about her work and answer questions. Light refreshments will be provided. This reception, sponsored by Perry Dental, is open and free to the public. Prints of Zenkova’s work are available for sale in the gift store.
