Studio visit with Ehren Kee Natay
May 20, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm$12
Ehren Kee Natay is a musician, performer, painter, jeweler, and photographer. No matter what the medium, Ehren has a desire to share and connect with others.
“I have a prayer, a spirit, a breath that is inside me. It tells me to create. It cannot be silenced. It can only be quieted by creating,” writes Ehren. “There is a journey in every piece of art, and also a lesson. When I can share this journey and this lesson with another human, an exchange of wisdom takes place.”
Ehren’s recent artistic practice has been focused on archival research about his grandfather, Ed Lee Natay, who was the first Native American musician to professionally record traditional music for commercial release. Ehren’s goal is to create a literary, illustrated work of non-fiction that chronicles his grandfather’s life and celebrates his legendary influence on American music.
