Sioux Indian Museum, Rapid City, South Dakota


Ledger Art by

Evans Flammond, Sr.

May 8 - July 5, 2015

Evans Flammond, Sr., an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, is a skilled artist and craftsman. Born in Rosebud, SD, and raised on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Reservations, he now lives in Oglala, SD, with his family. Evans has two sons, Evans Jr. and Edward, who are also exceptional artists and aspiring musicians.

Inspired by the Northern Plains Native arts, Evans began producing imaginative drawings at the age of seven. As his talent and creativity grew and matured, Maynard Barker, a Santee Dakota mural painter and Evans' uncle, encouraged Evans to turn his drawings into paintings. Influenced by nature and a love of the outdoors, his techniques and ideas evolve with the creation of each new artwork. Working with a variety media including ledger art, metalwork, and hide painting, Evans seeks to portray Lakota art as adaptable and innovative as he draws from designs of the past. While portraying traditional themes, he adds a modern twist through the use of vibrant colors and detailed designs.

His artwork has been exhibited in both galleries and art shows including: All My Relations Art Gallery, Minneapolis, MN; Prairie Edge Trading Co & Galleries, Rapid City, SD; Red Cloud Art Show, Pine Ridge, SD; and A Gathering of People Wind and Water, Rapid City, SD. Evan's artwork can be found in the collections of several museums including: The Red Cloud Heritage Center, Pine Ridge, SD; the Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul; South Dakota State Capitol Collection, Pierre; as well as numerous international private collections.
