Joe David / Preston Singletary

Joe David / Preston Singletary


Collaboration for the Ka Ka Win Chealth: Transformations in Glass exhibition, November 2011.

The title of this exhibition, Ka Ka Win Chealth, is the traditional family name given to Joe David and passed to Preston Singletary in a ceremonial adoption in 2000 — its translation is “Orca Transforming” or “Wolf Transforming into Killerwhale.” Joe David is from the Wolf crest of the Nuu-chah-nulth nation and Preston Singletary is of the Killerwhale clan of the Tlingit nation, so this name aptly fits both the artists and this exhibition. The relationship between these artists has been an interesting one and it continues to evolve both personally and professionally, as they are close friends, artists, and collaborators.
