Please join us in welcoming Sept 2023 resident artist Tammie Dupuis! @tammie.dupuis | Join us on Sept 22nd at the Bridgehampton Museum for a public Twine Bag Workshop led by Tammie. (link in bio or on www.mashouse.studio)
Tammie was born and raised in Northwestern Montana on the Flathead Reservation. Her father was Qlispe’a and Seli’š, and her mother was the daughter of non-Indigenous settlers who moved to the reservation in the 1920s. Her aesthetic is situated between these two cultural heritages and explores their complicated history and her identity as a mixed-blood person.
Using both Indigenous and non-Indigenous ways of making and seeing, her work ranges across several different processes and materials, including but not limited to paint, wood, fabric, resin, hair, bone, paper, and beads.
Tammie earned her MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA, in 2022 and her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA, in 2019. Additionally, she holds a BS in Anthropology/Archaeology from Montana State University, located in Bozeman, MT. She and her art practice are located in Bremerton, WA.
