In the summer of 2008, Jeffrey completed a print-making residency at the Crow Shadow Institute in Oregon and a residency at SAR’s Indian Arts Research Center (IARC). In 2009, he was named a recipient of the Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art.
Jeffrey Gibson’s project at IARC examined how artists have translated their environment into objects by their material choices and their depiction of cultural life, beliefs, and criticisms. He developed a series of drawings and paintings on paper and wood based on these ideas.
