TYRA SHACKLEFORD (CHICK­A­SAW)

Native American Art - - TEXTILES -

“I spe­cial­ize in three weav­ing tech­niques: fin­ger­weav­ing, twin­ing and sprang. These tech­niques are com­pleted en­tirely by hand with­out the use of a loom. I ex­press my cul­tural iden­tity through my art….in pre­vi­ous years, I made mostly wear­able art. This year, I am bring­ing two-di­men­sional pieces like the Twin Turkeys.”
