AICHO Galleries

Karen Savage, Carl Gawboy, Wendy Savage, Steve Premo, Leah Yellowbird, Vern Northrup, Jonathan Thunder, Slats Fairbanks, Lyz Jaakola, Moira Villiard, Annie Humphrey, Ivy Vainio – just to name a few – all Ojibwe artists are listed in our Artist Gallery. Some more seasoned than others have exhibited their artwork and/or music in the cultural spaces at Gimaajii-Mino-Bimaadizimin either in the Gimaajii Gallery or Trepanier Hall Gallery throughout the past year. Some artists began their artistic career/journey with the AICHO Galleries. Regardless of when these artists have started their art careers, their artwork has vibrantly added to the physical spaces within the AICHO galleries and buildings.

Besides visual arts, AICHO has hosted several music concerts, open mic nights, youth variety shows, and spoken word and poetry performances by people of all ages. You can feel the excitement in the air when the youth come together to perform and support each other. What an empowering experience for everyone in the room.

Annual Calendar

Each year for the past 3 years,
American Indian Community Housing Organization created an annual calendar to help promote its arts programing.

The first two calendars featured the photography of Ivy Vainio. The 2014 calendar included photographs and stories from Vainio’s 2013 “Naamijig: Honoring Our Traditions” exhibition, her first solo exhibition and AICHO’s first hosted gallery exhibition. Her 2015 calendar featured happy and healthy American Indian youth. This year’s calendar features the works of artists who have shown their work in AICHO’s galleries. All proceeds help sustain the arts program.
