Turquoise Tortoise Gallery
“Stan Natchez: Icons Upended”
Turquoise GalleryStan Natchez has a prestigious pedigree that began in the late 1980s at his first gallery show, with legendary art dealer Elaine Horwitch. Natchez’s paintings make visual statements both varied and profound. Often with the vivid colors and strong references of Pop Art, Natchez captures the iconography so deeply embedded in our American psyche. Then he upends it. What one could call “Native Americana” becomes as strong a statement as our traditional “Americana.” For more information please visit the Turquoise Tortoise Gallery.
