The Tilghman Island Inn, located at 21384 Coopertown Rd, Tilghman Island, MD, will be hosting Navajo artist, Gilbert Jumbo, from September 4 to October 2nd. Reception will be held on Sunday, September 8, from 3 to 5 p.m. Born in Ganado, Arizona, on the Navajo Nation, Mr. Jumbo grew up near Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. He attended the world class Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the Phoenix Institute of Technology, and Yavapai College in Prescott, AZ.
Mr. Jumbo’s artwork tells the stories of his Navajo traditions and culture and draws from a vast inner reservoir of ancient cultural knowledge and experience passed down from generation to generation through Navajo songs, stories and ceremonies. He is a highly skilled nationally recognized multimedia artist. His works include pencil drawings, pastels, acrylics and calligraphy. Perhaps Mr. Jumbo’s finest artistic skill is in his watercolors and gouache. His eye for detail is especially evident in his miniatures which he paints with a three to four fine hair brush. Among his most popular paintings are his multi-montages depicting the four seasons with several miniature scenes matted together.
Some of his work has been displayed at the Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington D.C. Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature in 2009, and the 26th Annual North American Miniature Art Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Fells Point, Fells Point, MD, in 2009. He has received numerous awards, including most recently at the 91st Gallup Intertribal Indian Ceremonial in Gallup, New Mexico (2012).
