Her Native American ancestry is central to much of Maggie’s work. Recent fine art works address the idea of Native authenticity and what it means in contemporary society.
Maggie Thompson is described as one of the most important Native artists making some of the strongest contemporary Native art in the nation today. Find out more about Maggie Thompson’s work at http://www.makwastudio.com

Congratulations to two of our artists, Terri Myers Wentzka and Kristine Fretheim, for being selected as a part of Minnesota Monthly’s “Best New Art of 2016”.
Terri’s piece is called “Not Home” (graphite, charcoal, carbon, and pastel on Arnhem) “Not Home is part of a new series that explores the omnipresence of surveillance in our world, whether by corporations, government, the neighbors, and even the birds and animals that occupy our public spaces—they’re keeping an eye on us, too.”
Kristine’s piece is entitled “Delirious” (watercolor on Arches Hot Press) “Using forms in nature as design elements, I create intricate, abstract watercolors, imbuing my work with a sense of teeming energy and depth that draws the viewer ever further into the picture plane.”
