Paintings

Charles Her Many Horses

Exhibition October 6th - Dec 9th

New Traditions by Stephanie Hunter-SorbelCharles Her Many Horses, an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, is a contemporary artist who works in a variety of media; including painting, sculpture, and jewelry. Born in Rosebud, SD, Charles attended Todd County High School, in Mission, SD, before moving to Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, where he attended the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. He currently lives in Rosebud, SD, where he works full time as an artist.

From childhood, Charles had a strong interest in art. Through many years of study and practice he developed his skills and techniques. He begins his artistic process by selecting the subject matter for a painting or sculpture. Charles is greatly inspired by ancient and modern masters, and themes for his work come from his personal experiences, as well as traditional Lakota stories. If the subject of his work is a traditional story or theme, he uses characters that are geometrical and whimsical. He is always seeking to add an element of humor to each piece and make it intriguing to contemporary audiences in an attempt to dispel preconceived notions about Indian art.

Charles' artwork was featured in multiple art shows; including the Red Cloud Indian Art Show in Pine Ridge, SD, the American Indian Higher Education Consortium Art Show in Santa Fe, NM, and the Northern Plains Indian Art Market in Sioux Falls, SD. He has received numerous awards including the Aplan Award for outstanding young artist at the 2010 Red Cloud Indian Art Show and 1st Place in the Painting Division at the 2013 Red Cloud Indian Art Show.

Prices for the artwork in the exhibition can be obtained by contacting The Journey Museum Store at (605) 394-2201. To purchase artwork after the exhibit closes, please contact Charles Her Many Horses by mail at PO Box 9 Rosebud, SD 57570; by phone at (605) 747-2648; or email at chermanyhorses@gmail.com
