Amerind Virtual Autumn Fest
Free Online Salon and Art Sale with Rykelle Kemp
Saturday, October 24, 2020, 3:00 pm – Arizona Time
Rykelle Kemp’s (Mvskoke Creek-Euchee/ Choctaw/ Diné) works of art is a representation of the knowledge she has attained of her Southwestern & Southeastern heritage; which she combines in each piece she creates. Rykelle produces one-of-a-kind mono-silk screen prints, mix-medium artworks and jewelry. She started her own business, ‘Ahlazua-Indigenous Woman Made’ in 2018, which focuses on affordable jewelry collections, accessories & graphic design. She discovered a passion for jewelry making and has created a unique style that incorporates her tribal heritage. Rykelle works with natural materials that she has found in her tribes while studying and researching traditional methods and materials. From the Southeast she incorporates shells, pearls, and shell carving/cutting & applies that to techniques and materials from her Diné Tribe in the Southwest such as tufa casting, turquoise and sweat soldering. With her goal to combine and use as many traditional techniques and materials from all her tribes, she has developed a distinct design style. During this program, Rykelle will discuss her art and share with guests pieces she currently has for sale.
