Tephra ICA is pleased to present Family Day, a fun and exciting opportunity for audiences of all ages to connect with the exhibition on view. Join us for an Indigenous beading workshop with featured artist, Noelle Garcia, and leave with your own beaded appliqué!

As always, Family Day events are free and open to the public. Registration is required, and limited spaces are available.

Noelle Garcia is a Chicagoland area artist and educator who focuses on themes of identity, family history, and recovered narratives. She is an indigenous artist from the Klamath and Paiute tribes and sees her painting practice as an embodiment of her native worldview. She also employs traditional beading techniques to create soft sculptures of everyday objects and mythologized artifacts from the story of her incarcerated father, through whose lineage she is now an active member of her tribes.

Garcia holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2007) and an MFA from the University of Nevada Las Vegas (2012). Her work has been exhibited across the US, earning awards and fellowships from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, the Nevada Arts Council, the Illinois Arts Council, and the American Indian Graduate Center, among others.

This program is generously supported by Reston Community Center.
