Lauren Monroe Jr. at Stephen Isley Jewelry

We are excited to feature Lauren Monroe’s paintings inspired by the Blackfeet culture in our shop for the month of July!

Lauren Monroe Jr. is an enrolled member of the Blackfeet Tribe located on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana.

His art reflects Blackfeet cultural motifs and imagery as well as his personal experience of living and growing up on the reservation. The abstract and surreal quality of his acrylic work creates a visual narrative with dream like qualities, which often leave the viewer in thought of the story behind them.

Currently, Lauren resides on the Blackfeet Reservation working part time as an instructor at Blackfeet Community College and freelancing on films as art production.

We hope that we’ll get to see you on Thursday, July 6th from 6-9pm!
