Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Academic or public libraries serving patrons who are interested in the contemporary Native American art scene are encouraged to select this title."

ARBA

"…This volume represents a broad spectrum of contemporary media and styles including painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video, mixed media, assemblage art, glass art, fiber art, ceramic art, printmaking, videography, filmmaking, digital art, and performance art. Alphabetically arranged entries reflect the authors' intensive research; they include interviews with artists and/or their families and visits to the studios, exhibitions, and museums. Lengthy entries offer information about artists' lives and the impact on cultural experience on their personal philosophies and work. Each entry concludes with references and a list of places to view the artist's work. Black-and-white reproductions accompany some entries; several pages of color plates add interest. This is an important resource for any library supporting programs in art history, fine arts, or Native American studies. Includes a glossary. Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."
