“I want death to find me planting my cabbages, but careless of death, and still more of my unfinished garden.”

 - Michel de Montaigne

Red Lake Nation Ojibwe artist Robert DesJarlait has a lot going on, but he really loves those words from Michel de Montaigne.

DesJarlait, a writer, artist, traditional dancer, and gardener is showing his recent watercolor/mixed media paintings in a virtual exhibition and at AICHO through September.

Ojibwe Manidoowiwin: Paintings by Robert DesJarlaitis DesJarlait's celebration of what he calls "my central theme - Ojibwe Manidoowiwin, the tribal spirit of the Ojibwe people."

"Get into the groove of rough drafts, demos, and low-budget rough cuts. See how many ideas you can take from sticky note to first draft. Then — if you’re ready — take ’em further."
