Landry art to go on display Sept. 17

Kristine Torset, cultural specialist with the Shoalwater Bay Tribe, left, is pictured with Angela Gibbs and a 1963 painting that will feature in an exhibit called “Eugene Landry. An Artist, a Time and a Tribe.” The exhibit was highlighted in the Chinook Observer last year just before covid health safety regulations caused it to be postponed. Gibbs, from Lake Forest, Wash., told show organizers her father bought the still life at auction. It had been displayed at the Frye Museum in Seattle during its annual West Coast show in 1964. The exhibit will be opened at a reception 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 17 at the Shoalwater Bay Tribal Community Library and Heritage Museum at 4115 State Route 105, Tokeland. The museum’s regular hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Masks are required. For more information, log on to or
