Totems is a group show curated by Tearee Clarie Caswell. A totem is a carved or painted animal, plant or object that is serving among certain tribal or traditional peoples as the emblem of a clan or family. A totem is regarded as the family or clan’s founder, or guardian and a reminder of its ancestry. The artists in this group show submitted their works to Tearee Caswell and were encouraged to not only demonstrate pieces reflecting the theme of Totems, but to also add their interpretations to it. They were told to research the theme and create pieces unique to their style. With this information, one can assume Totems will be a diverse show and provide a variety of talented work. Tearee Caswell is a RAW Artist in Omaha and has been since January of 2014. She focuses on fiber art, mixed media, illustrations, and curates art events such as this one. RAW ventures to provide the platform for success for independent, natural born artists within the first 10 years of their creative career by giving them the resources they need.
