INEUP

River Trading Post has become

known for its amazing lineup of

today’s top Native American

artists, and Oneida artist Mark

Fischer has joined our impres-

sive list that includes Cliff Fra-

gua, Caroline Carpio, Amelia

Joe-Chandler, and other of

today’s top Native American

artists.

Fischer is a member of the

Oneida Nation of Green Bay,

Turtle Clan.

Mark’s work is inspired by an-

cient Woodland petroglyphs

and pictographs that celebrate

nature, gender and Native art

and culture.

Each piece is hand cut, welded

in silver and then air brushed

with a patina finish to enhance

the copper’s natural aging proc-

ess.

Traditional Iroquois designs,

quill and beaded symbols are

created in copper to comple-

ment his sculptures while visu-

ally teaching Native art history.

Mark’s work has won many

awards, including a first place

at the 2007 Eiteljorg Museum

show and a third place award at

the 2007 Santa Fe Indian Mar-

ket. His work is included in the

collection of the Department of

Interior.

You can see Mark Fischer’s art

in each of our galleries, and on

our website.
