The show highlights the humorous side of more than two dozen participating artists. All of the pieces make light of different aspects of American Indian culture. Examples include a piece titled Dont Squeeze the Shaman, and another that depicts Sitting Bull as Superman.
Benjamin Harjo Jr., creator of Humor Without Reservations, said its important to have a sense of humor when it comes to art.
I think people like this show because it presents something that they dont usually see, which is humor in artwork. I dont think art should always be so serious, said Harjo, noting that participating artists had no restrictions. I wanted the artists to be able to have fun with whatever they were creating. I want them to be able to look at their own work and smile.
While Sundays opening is scheduled from 2 to 5 p.m., the show runs through May 10. Tribes 131 is open Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information, call 329-4442 or visit tribes131.com. Courtney Silva
