Kris Waymire – June 2024

Please join us in welcoming June resident artist Kris Waymire! Ironically, as a visual artist, Kris is drawn to spoken languages. Their artistic inspiration comes from Runa Simi, a native Andean language, and many of their creative decisions are based on its grammar rules. While Kris’ grandparents would prefer studying the word of God, Kris strives to show them the beauty of their mother tongue through their art. It is important to Kris to pass on Iñupiaq and Runa Simi to their younger cousins and children. Through their art, Kris aims to ensure that their culture is not whitewashed away and that their grandparents will live knowing their mother tongue has been passed on to the next generation.

Stay tuned for a beading workshop led by Kris on Friday, July 5th from 6 – 8 pm!
