Southern Plains Indian Museum, Anadarko, Oklahoma

J. Nicole Hatfield "My Art Is My Voice"

November 21, 2014 - January 16, 2015

J. Nicole Hatfield, considers painting to be her "voice." Her preferred medium is acrylic on canvas, using bold colors. She often incorporates Native language in her artwork, to keep the language alive in the modern world. After attending the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, her art expanded into a range of different mediums. She draws much of her inspiration from old photographs of American Indian men and women. Nicole hopes to give a voice to her ancestors by honoring them in her paintings. She strives to embrace new perspectives while appreciating the unchanging spirit in all things, including tribal values. Nicole achieves these goals by incorporating, and transcending, the past.

J. Nicole Hatfield is an enrolled member of the Comanche Tribe of Oklahoma. Within the Comanche Tribe, she is a member of the Penatuka (Honey Eater) Band. Born in Lawton, Oklahoma, to Joseph D. Sr., and Cheryl Hatfield, she is a graduate of Apache High School in Apache, Oklahoma. In 2013, she attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Nicole currently resides in Moore, Oklahoma, where she works as a full-time artist.

Following her experiences in Santa Fe, Nicole launched herself into the art scene with strength and confidence. Her work has been very well received by galleries and collectors at the recent Indigenous Fine Art Market (IFAM) in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition, she presents live painting demonstrations and lectures at the Paseo Art Gallery in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She is frequently a guest artist at the Jacobson House Native Art Center, at the University of Oklahoma. Her art work is included in several private collections, as well as the Comanche National Museum and Cultural Center in Lawton, Oklahoma.

Prices for her artwork can be obtained by contacting the Oklahoma Indian Arts and Crafts Cooperative Gift Shop at (405) 247 3486. After the exhibition closes, Nicole may be reached at guesswho1220@yahoo.com for information about purchasing artwork.
