Welcome to the blog for the Marcia Wood Gallery. This new blog is our way of staying in touch with you in a more personal manner than we can do on our website (though we hope you’ll visit it, too). Since the blog is new, it will surely evolve. For now, we’ve got updates on what our artists have been doing—we’re posting new information weekly—and what we’re doing as a gallery in terms of fairs and travel. Eventually we hope to include interviews with our artists, and some first-person pieces, maybe even special projects, by our artists and gallery friends.
If you’re going to be in New York at the end of the month, come by and say Hey. We’ll be at the Pulse Fair, booth #I-12.

Cross Cultural Perspective of Visual Communication, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, presentation topic: “native america: truth and imagery”, April 20-21, 2007
The conference hosted national and international researchers, faculty, and students presenting scholarly research, historical studies, creative experiences, and pedagogies that addressed cross-cultural perspectives of visual communication.
His presentation –“Native America: Truth and Imagery”, was a presentation of a project I did with students focusing on popular cultural and how current and historical Native Americans are perceived as well as addressing the needs of Native American design clients. Researched topics included films, photography, package design, fashion, logotypes, and food products, lectures by Native Americans, and attending the 51st Annual Chicago American Indian Center Powwow.
A critical analysis of these items preceded package design proposals for “Smoke Signals”, (a Native American written and directed film), a cover and double page spread for the Chicago Tribune Magazine (highlighting the Chicago American Indian Center Powwow),and a music CD package design for the Mark Cleveland Band (Eastern Cherokee) where two student’s proposals were printed by the client.
