Starting July 3 through September 11, 2021, the Penticton Art Gallery presents Buffy Sainte-Marie: Pathfinder – A retrospective exhibition by an innovator of digital art.
This exhibition presents a rare and unique window into the evolution of one of the early innovators of digital art starting with the purchase of her first Macintosh personal computer in 1984. It features 16 of Buffy’s groundbreaking digital paintings, as well as never-before-seen sketches, artifacts, and behind-the-scenes photos that speak directly to this respected icon’s unique perspective of her own multi-disciplinary life, culture, and the experiences that inspired these pieces. Discover and celebrate Buffy Sainte-Marie’s contribution to contemporary art history, the rise of digital art, and the powerful role she continues to command in educating and inspiring individuals and Indigenous communities across the globe.
