That’s Empressive art gallery is home to Nokomis, an Ojibwa grandmother who paints memories of growing up in the bush north of Lake Superior seventy years ago. Her original works hang on the walls, but she also has limited and open edition prints available as well as plaques and note cards.
Because Nokomis paints memories she knows what happened before and after anything you can see in the painting. The people she portrays have been intimately involved in her life and she tells their stories.
Every print, plaque and notecard has the story written on the back but take a moment and ask her to sit back and tell you the story herself … you’II get way more than a few words and phrases.
