to to­day. Her work con­sists of us­ing wood and a saw­ing tech­nique to cre­ate unique pieces of art that re­flect her rich cul­tural her­itage and con­nec­tion to the land and na­ture. Her use of in­tense and vi­brant colors por­trays Na­tive spir­i­tu­al­ity through an­i­mal­is­tic forms that are of­ten dis­sim­u­lated in her art.

Ms. Greyeyes, of the Plains Cree na­tion, was born in western Canada on a reser­va­tion lo­cated in the prov­ince of Saskatchewan. She has lived in Que­bec for the past fifty years and now makes her home in the East­ern Town­ships. Now re­tired, Ms. Greyeyes ded­i­cates her free time to her art and fre­quently takes part in var­i­ous re­gional art ex­hi­bi­tions. Her art has been ex­hib­ited in Old Mon­treal as well as in Brouage, France. Many of her pieces are in pri­vate col­lec­tions through­out Canada, the United States, France, Aus­tralia, Ar­gentina, Ger­many as well as the Do­mini­can Repub­lic. She is rep­re­sented by the gallery Whetung Ojibwa Cen­tre in On­tario.

Over the past few years, Ms. Greyeyes has of­ten been in­vited to speak to stu­dents in var­i­ous schools to present her abo­rig­i­nal cul­ture and share her per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences as a sur­vivor of res­i­den­tial schools. She draws in­spi­ra­tion for her work from her rich cul­tural back­ground and nu­mer­ous life ex­pe­ri­ences. Visit her web site at: www.ena­ Open­ing Hours:
