Landry art on display after covid delay

An exhibit called “Eugene Landry. An Artist, a Time and a Tribe.” at the Shoalwater Bay Tribal Community Library and Heritage Museum, delayed several times by covid health issues, has opened. The work celebrates Landry, who chronicled reservation life during the 1960s and later, painting from a wheelchair because of very serious medical issues which began as a late teenager. He died in 1988. A large cache of his paintings was discovered in a storage building a few years ago, promoting a resurgence of interest in his artwork. The Library and Heritage Museum is at 4115 State Route 105, Tokeland. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Masks are required.
