Indigenous artist and resident of West Columbia, South Carolina, Trudith Dyer, emerged on the art scene in 2018 after retiring from a teaching career in middle school mathematics. Trudith now spends her time working on three endeavors; 1) to reconnect with her culture and heritage as a member of the Upper Mattaponi Indian Tribe of Virginia and 2) with no formal art training Trudith is continually exploring, experimenting and expanding her knowledge of a variety of mediums. The blending of these two endeavors have influenced Trudith’s Native American themes. She researches and creates the beauty and complexities of Native American celebrations, issues, and stories of the past and present. Trudith’s art “Paper Genocide” is presently being exhibited at Jamestown Museum in Williamsburg Virginia. The exhibit focuses on the lives of Native Americans and the Racial Integrity Act of 1924. Additional exhibits include; Indigenous Women art exhibit Sisters are Sacred featuring South Carolina female artists and South Carolina Indian Affairs Commission Conference. A third endeavor has been added to Trudith's goals after she became a member of Engage Art which is to grown in faith studying scripture and interpreting verses into biblical art.
