Tim Tate and Calvert Nevaquaya - Breaking Traditions

July 7-August 18, 2012

Tim Tate and Calvert NevaquayaTim Tate and Calvert Nevaquaya, both members of the Comanche Nation, are sons of prominent Indian artist Doc Tate Nevaquaya (1932-1996). Being immersed in traditional Indian arts and culture has helped to develop the talent that both Tim and Calvert possess and has given them the opportunity to follow in their father's footsteps.

Tim Tate Nevaquaya has been painting for approximately 25 years. At the beginning of his career, Tim focused on utilizing traditional methods in his paintings. Soon he began incorporating vivid colors in his work and uniquely depicting his subjects. After studying different styles of art from around the world, Tim identified with the French Impressionist movement. This style of painting resonated with him and allowed him to better express the way he felt about his subjects. Tim created a new style for himself by combining realism with abstract, and learning to accept mistakes by incorporating them in his paintings.

In their home town of Apache, Oklahoma, Tim and Calvert now share a studio. They honor the traditional style of Oklahoma Indian art but also realize the need to break the rules of tradition. For information on purchasing pieces after the exhibit closes, please contact Tim and Calvert by email at nevaquaya@yahoo.com or by mail at P.O. Box 517, Apache, Oklahoma 73006.

The Southern Plains Indian Museum is managed by the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, U.S. Department of the Interior. For hours of operation call 1-405-247-6221.
