“Ruthe Blalock Jones: A Retrospective” will be on exhibit from Jan. 10 through March 16 at the C.N. Gorman Museum at UC Davis.

Featuring the works of internationally acclaimed artist Ruthe Blalock Jones (Chu-Lun-Dit), who traces her heritage to the Delaware, Shawnee and Peoria tribes, the retrospective exhibition presents artworks from throughout her career.

An artist talk and reception are planned from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, at the museum, 1316 Hart Hall on the UCD campus. Regular museum hours are noon to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 2 to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

Created in a range of media — including oil, acrylic, watercolor and printmaking — her works emerge from personal experiences with a focus on Native American women in dance attire, and depictions of ceremonial and social events.

Blalock Jones is a former art director and professor at Bacone College in Muskogee, Okla.

The C.N. Gorman Museum is committed to the creative expressions of Native American artists, and artists of diverse cultures and histories. Changing exhibits feature contemporary artwork in a wide range of media, reflecting the canon in which Indigenous artists are working today.

Founded in 1973 by the department of Native American studies, the museum is named in honor of retired faculty member Carl Nelson Gorman, a Navajo artist, World War II code-talker, cultural historian, and advocate for native peoples.
