Charles M. Bair Family Gallery & Northwest Projects Gallery
Uncle Dirty: A nickname earned by Albrecht while serving in Iraq for doing the dirty work (good and not-so-good).
Jimmy Cardell: Alias of Chandler’s father who used the name in vulnerable situations or when other individuals couldn’t be trusted.
Albrecht’s ceramic vessels and Chandler’s paintings share an autobiographical, visual language driven by the effects of war, generational trauma, self-preservation, and healing. Albrecht, a veteran of the Iraq war, paints and decals on roughly formed ceramic vessels, capturing the overwhelming experience of war and post-war life. Chandler, an artist, and president of Aaniiih Nakoda College in Harlem, Montana, paints expressionistic figures mixed with quiet narrative scenes and hybrid creatures illustrating his experience of Aaniinen life.
