CROW NOW: A visual survey 1904-2016
104 North Broadway, Suite 204
Billings, Montana 59101
Tel 406 384 0996
Around 1904 – the year Stapleton Gallery’s building was constructed in Billings, Montana — legendary photographer Richard Throssel had taken up residence in Montana and began photographing the Crow Nation. His classic, Western photography inspires even today. These were the first photos taken by someone adopted by the Crow people; he was given access to the ceremonies and rituals others had not documented.
On September 16 Stapleton Gallery will show selections from the largest private collection of original Throssel photos alongside new, contemporary work by artists Kevin Red Star, Ben Pease, Judd Thompson and Erika Haight, to name a few. Some of these artists are Crow by birth and some — like Throssel — have been formally adopted by the Crow.

The one-man show during First Friday Art Walk on Friday, August 5, 2016 features Native American painter Kevin Red Star from 5:00-7:30 pm at Sorrel Sky Gallery’s downtown location at 125 W. Palace Ave. Nationally and Internationally acclaimed, Red Star’s paintings celebrate his culture’s history in a contemporary yet traditional style. He is one of Sorrel Sky Gallery’s featured artists during Santa Fe Indian Market 2016.
Sorrel Sky Gallery owner, Shanan Campbell Wells, sees Red Star’s work as innovative, continually breaking new ground. “Kevin’s use of bold color, his masterful manipulation of light and contrast, his obvious dedication to his craft and his culture … it touches something new in the viewer each time they are in the presence of his work. It’s been an honor to represent Kevin at our Durango location for so many years. To now have him at our Santa Fe location, not just to present this new body of work, but to represent him here as well, I couldn’t be more pleased.”
