Luanne Redeye joins the Department of Art Practice as Assistant Professor

August 2, 2023

UC Berkeley’s Division of Arts & Humanities is pleased to welcome professor Luanne Redeye as of July 1, 2023. Redeye is an assistant professor in the Department of Art Practice, where her works utilize a Native lens to share her experiences and perspective of navigating a modern world as a Native woman.

Having grown up on the Allegany Indian Reservation in Western New York and an enrolled member of the Seneca Nation of Indians and Hawk Clan, Redeye incorporates community, family and culture into her artwork. Her collections have been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, the Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan; the Institute of American Indian Arts; Saint Lawrence University; the New York State Museum; and El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe. 

Redeye received her B.F.A. in studio art from SUNY-Oswego, where she was a Ronald E. McNair scholar, before earning her M.F.A. in painting and drawing from the University of New Mexico. Her recent Frame Series focuses on intertwining personal narratives and family relationships to explore larger themes that affect Native communities, utilizing paitning as a guide toward healing.
