Seattle sculptor and multi-media artist Preston Singletary has become both a star of the glass art universe as well as a pioneer advocate for the concept of expressing native traditions though non-traditional materials. His current traveling exhibition, Preston Singletary: Raven and the Box of Daylight, used his sculptures, spoken word, and music to immerse viewers into the Tlingit origin story of Raven.  We’ll talk to Preston about the evolution of his work, and how his use of glass allows him to connect to his cultural heritage.

Gage Academy of Art acknowledges the Coast Salish Peoples as the original inhabitants of this area and connecting waterways. We understand the land that Gage occupies is unceded territory and that today many Indigenous peoples live here and without their stewardship, we would not have access to this space. We honor the Coast Salish Peoples’ sovereignty, rights to self-determination, culture and ways of life. Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have called this territory their sacred land. We commit to learning, educating others and repairing the legacy of historically harmful relationships between non-Native and Native peoples in King County. In doing so, we will be honest, and recognize the experiences of Native peoples to include genocide, forced relocation, forced assimilation, and land theft. We also acknowledge Native peoples are survivors, present in today’s world, thriving. We encourage everyone here today to ask themselves: what can I do to support Indigenous communities?

In an effort to be transparent, Gage is contemplating this call to action and re-working how to best support Indigenous communities.
