Contemporary American Indian artist Richard Red Owl was born in 1940 on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. He is a member of the Oglala Sioux Nation and is self-taught as an artist, painter and drum maker.

Lakota artist Roger Broer born in 1945 lives and works in Hill City, South Dakota. Broer prefers a “modified form of monotype using oil paints” to create richly stylized images portraying human figures.

Both artists’ works convey an intensive introspective creativity while also focusing on harmony of race.

Broer and Red Owl are represented in numerous private and public collections and are the recipients of several prestigious awards. They have exhibited their art nationally, and Broer abroad as well. They are among the nine original members of the Dream Catchers Artist Guild founded in 1983.
