Local artist Becky Olvera Schultz shares about her Native American artwork:
“I’ve been an active artist since 1993. My art is Native American, Indigenous to the Americas and Southwestern in theme. Although I work in many mediums, my specialty is portrait style Native American themed clay art masks and clay or gourd Southwest style masks. My art creations also include dolls, photography, serigraphs, clay plagues, rawhide shields and mixed media works.”
“I have been represented in galleries in several states and participated in national juried exhibits. My work has also been featured in national publications: Cowboys & Indians, Native Peoples Magazine and Wild West Magazine. I’ve exhibited in many venues including 7 museum exhibitions, 6 of which were solo exhibits.”
“I recently installed my 7th museum exhibition of my art career. The exhibit was Tribal Voices and was in Sonoma County at the Petaluma Historical Museum. This exhibit was an expression of Native American culture through art and artifacts combining Native American artifacts and contemporary artwork.”
The artist’s connection to Santa Cruz:
“I have lived in Santa Cruz County for most of my life and have been a resident of Aptos for 32 years. I participated in the Arts Council of Santa Cruz County’s Open Studios Tours for 12 years. I have exhibited my art work in various Santa Cruz County venues hundreds of times.”
