Tirawa Shows Himself through the Beasts

Tirawa Shows Himself through the Beasts/30x40/ oil on canvas

"In the beginning of all things, wisdom and knowledge were with the animals, for Tirawa, the One Above, did not speak directly to man. He sent certain animals to tell men that he showed himself through the beast, and that from them, and from the stars, and the sun, and the moon should man learn... all things tell of Tirawa."—Eagle Chief Letakots-Lesa, Pawnee Tribe 

This quote was the inspiration for the painting that was showcased by CFA Gallery this past summer and continues to inspire. Paintings can be purchased on the Available Paintings page.

July 3rd Opening at CFA Gallery, Exhibit through August 29th

White Buffalo Spirit RisingJuly 3rd, 6-9 pm is the Opening for Armantrout's new work featuring the bison as icon at CFA Gallery, 916 Main Street, Louisville, Colorado. Armantrout's recent body of work evolved from her series of Power Images.  The work results from thoughts and feelings about: Connections to ancestors, artists, and shamans who made ancient marks, leaving marks on top of marks, and believing “We are all related” across time and across continents.

The bison energy came roaring into the Studio and does not leave.  The cave and rock art continues to influence Linda, as does her reading about Native American culture. Armantrout is also introducing a series of graphite Drawings of Spirit Messengers. Preview the paintings at Available Paintings or scroll through Studio News (page 2) to see the drawings. First Friday in the Louisville Arts District is always fun. Enjoy art, music, wine, food.


The Legend & Importance of the White Buffalo, a symbol of sacred life and abundance

John Lame Deer, a Lakota spiritual leader shares, "A white buffalo is the most sacred living thing you could ever encounter." The American Buffalo or Bison is a symbol of abundance and manifestation. The lesson passed on by the Lakota is that one does not have to struggle to survive. This is especially true if the right action is joined by the right prayer. By learning to appropriately unite the mundane with the divine,  all that will be needed will be provided.

A Lakota Legend...One summer a long time ago, the seven sacred council fires of the Lakota Sioux came together and camped. The sun was strong and the people were starving for there was no game. Two young men went out to hunt in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Along the way, a beautiful young woman dressed in white appeared to the warriors and said, "Return to your people and tell them I am coming." This holy woman presented the Lakota people with the sacred pipe which showed how all things were connected. She taught the Lakota people the mysteries of the earth. She taught them to pray and follow the proper path while on earth. As the woman left the tribe, she rolled upon the earth four times, changing color each time, and finally turning into a white buffalo calf. Then she disappeared. Almost at the same time as her leaving, great herds of buffalo could be seen surrounding the camps. It is said that after that day, the Lakota honored their pipe, and buffalo were plentiful.


Sellars Project Space Show Extended through Salida Art Walk.

“I heard them call your name… the Gods… the Ancients…
the Universe…
the All Knowing…
the All Seeing… They Whispered… it’s time… its time for you to be you. It’s time for you to love more, give more, be more, live more…it’s time…and that time is now.”
— Nick Ortner

Following the One who Knows the Way/60"x48" Oil paintingSellars Project Space is pleased to present the work of Colorado artist Linda Armantrout in an exhibition of new works titled, Following the One Who Knows the Way. This exhibition opens with a reception for the artist on Saturday, May 9th, 2015 from 5 - 8 p.m. during the Salida Artists’ Second Saturday Gallery Tour and will continue through June 8th, 2015.

Armantrout’s work uses the form of the moving horse, and other symbolically charged animals and people, as a metaphor for the power of spirit. Her process includes meditation, sketching, drawing, and color theory. She manipulates both line and color to make energy and emotions visible. This body of work evolved from an exploration of the layers of meaning found in common symbols, both prehistoric and historic, and of the universality of the symbols found in our spiritual ancestry on cave and rock walls.

Sellars Project Space, celebrating it’s 25th year, is located in the creative and historic mountain town of Salida, Colorado. From it’s storefront in the state’s largest historic district, the gallery and store offers visitors a glimpse into the life of mountain living. Open May through September, Sellars Project Space is open Mondays - Fridays from 10 - 2 p.m. and weekends from 11 - 2 p.m. and always by appointment. For more information visit or call (719) 207-4150. Artist and Curator available for interviews. Photographs and video available.
