Artist Profile: Cedar Sage & Sweetgrass

Cedar Sage & Sweetgrass is an ensemble of Indigenous Artists showing their best work, representing Indigenous Peoples from across Canada.

The ensemble was created with the goal of giving Indigenous Artists a forum where they could show their best art as well as a space to connect and encourage one another. The group hosts First Nations, Metis, and Inuit artists in most of their shows and provides indigenous youth with opportunities to engage and promote their work.

“As an Indigenous Artist we found that our art was not accepted to be part of shows in some of our communities art galleries.  In speaking with other Indigenous Artists we found that they experienced the same situation.”

“Each of our shows has its own uniqueness.  The Artists are chosen for that particular show including a Feature Artist.  Some shows include Indigenous entertainment. Others have Indigenous food, wine, coffee, tea.  It’s an opportunity to show all wonderful Indigenous things.”

See their exhibition “Under My Wing” on now at the Anvil Centre Community Art Gallery.
