Across the Ages

Tlingit Paintings by Jean Taylor


Jean Taylor is from the Dakhl awedi Clan of the Teslin Tlingit Nation. She loves to paint people of her culture in regalia and enjoys capturing the dynamic movement of dance which is encouraged by plenty of positive feedback. She is especially fond of painting grandmothers and most recently is painting totem animals. Portraiture, however, remains her favorite activity. 

I am very pleased to be exhibiting again at the Steinbrueck Native Gallery. The title of the exhibition “Across the Ages” captures the theme of the relationship between the young and old. In my culture, there is much love between elders and youth and this is often expressed through humor. 

I am excited to share the colors and beauty of the culture as portrayed through beautiful regalia.
