UKIAH—“Gathering Time: Pomo Art During the Pandemic,” a groundbreaking new exhibit of works by contemporary Pomo artists made during the COVID-19 pandemic, opened at Grace Hudson Museum on Sept. 2 and will run through Jan. 15, 2023.

“Gathering Time” features the artwork of 15 different contemporary Pomo artists, representing 10 Pomo tribal groups that span Mendocino, Lake and Sonoma Counties. The show encompasses multiple art forms, including painting, photography, basket weaving, regalia, jewelry and digital media.

September 2—January 15, 2023

Location: Grace Hudson Museum, 431 S. Main St. Ukiah.

The museum has planned a number of programs to accompany the exhibition. These include three in-person artist panels, the first on Oct. 1, which featured Katie Williams-Elliot (Hopland Tribe), Donna Ramirez (Cloverdale Rancheria), and Eric Wilder (Kashia Pomo, Stewarts Point Rancheria) discussing their work in two-dimensional media. Subsequent artist panels will focus on basket weaving and regalia making.

“Gathering Time: Pomo Art During the Pandemic” was made possible by the generous support from Sherwood Valley Rancheria, Robinson Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians, Guidiville Indian Rancheria, Shingle Springs Band of Wiwok Indians, and California Humanities, a nonprofit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
