Red Lodge Clay Center Long-Term Resident 2016-17, Short-Term Resident (ASPN) 2015

Raven Halfmoon (Caddo Nation) is from Norman, Oklahoma. She attended the University of Arkansas where she earned a double Bachelors Degree in ceramics/painting and cultural anthropology. Her work has been featured in multiple exhibitions throughout the U.S. as well as internationally. Halfmoon is currently based in Helena, MT where she is an artist in residence at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts. She is represented by Gallery FRITZ in Santa Fe, NM.

I have focused on producing a body of work that is reflective of how I feel both as a woman and as an Native American living in the 21st Century. Each piece is a reflection of my understanding and interpretation of Caddo culture and the fight to maintain a place for it in today’s world. I feel it is my duty to continue this legacy of sharing information through art. It is necessary for me to continue a tradition of making, telling and sharing history.
