“I like to make art about animals. My art is mainly about Indigenous people and animals. In Oneida there are different clans that have different animals like eagles. I am originally from deer clan. The Every Child Matters art was made for justice. I want to show people about Indigenous culture.” —Jozie “My titles are written in Oneida because I’m native. I like printmaking because it’s fun. I like animals and nature so my art shows that. I like learning about animals and riding horses and I want to be a vet tech. I’m learning my language which is Oneida. I want to make really big art in the future, more block prints and cyanotype prints.” —Mea

 

This summer, FCG has launched FCG Pier, a community-focused display space named for the idea of a pier as both an arrival place and an exciting point of departure. When we think of a pier, we also might think of the word “peer” (meaning to look at something) or “peers,” as in our friends and colleagues. Finally, a pier is also an architectural term for a support structure. FCG wouldn’t exist without the hard work, heavy lifting, and support of our community. Jozie and Mea are two elementary school students, budding artists, and part of the Oneida Nation of the Thames. They are passionate about honing their skills in printmaking, as well as developing their fluency in Oneida, and their work often embodies and represents their interests and identities. Special thanks to Art East for custom framing Jozie and Mea's works!
