Event to honor Kiowa artist Lois Smoky

NORMAN — Jacobson House Native Art Center will honor Kiowa Five artist Lois Smoky during “Lois Smoky: Trailblazer and Traditionalist” with an event from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at 609 Chautauqua Ave.

The free event, a part of the 2nd Friday Circuit of Art, includes a presentation from guest Kiowa artist Sharron Ahtone Harjo about her own work and that of Smoky’s.

Tracey Satepauhoodle-Mikkanen, Jacobson House interim executive director, said Harjo will provide insight into the role Smoky played as the only female member of the Kiowa Five, a group of six influential Kiowa artists from the early 20th century.

Several of Harjo’s paintings will be on display during the event, Satepauhoodle-Mikkanen said.

Other features of the event include live painting demonstrations by Native artists Antonia Belindo (Kiowa) and J. NiCole Hatfield (Kiowa/Comanche). The women’s paintings will be auctioned off at the end of the night.

Brian Frejo’s “Shock B and the Culture Shock” also will perform live Native contemporary and traditional music, as well as motivational speaking.
