Overview

People of the River: Native Arts of the Oregon Territory is the first major publication to focus exclusively on the rich artistic traditions of the Native Americans who traditionally lived along the lower Columbia River from the mouth of the Snake River to the Pacific Ocean. In this illustrated catalogue, author Bill Mercer describes the Columbia River art style as an indigenous development that emerged over the course of countless generations and whose forms reveal unique combination of designs, motifs, materials, and techniques. Included are more than two hundred objects organized into sections that focus on sculptural forms, basketry, and beadwork spanning the pre-contact era to the middle of the twentieth century. People of the River features many objects that have never before been published and provides been insight into a previously unrecognized area of Native American art. With insightful texts, lavish reproductions, and an extensive bibliography, People of the River promises to be a key resource on this compelling body of work for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Native people, referred to historically as the Chinook, have lived along the Columbia River for countless generations, enjoying the bountiful environment and creating their own art tradition and style. This style is made up of a distinctive combination of designs, motifs, materials, and techniques that were used to decorate objects ranging from sculpture to beadwork. At the Portland Art Museum, Mercer (curator, Native American art) has invested years of planning and research into the most extensive exhibition of Columbia River art to date (running until May 2005), and this companion book is the first to cover the full range of Columbia River artistic expression. Objects come from public and private collections and date from the precontact era to the mid-20th century. The exuberance and creativity of the beadwork is captured in beautiful color photographs, as is the enigmatic quality of the ancient bone and stone sculpture. Recommended for university libraries, large public libraries, and specialized Native American or Northwestern art and/or culture collections.-Sylvia Andrews, Butler Univ., Indianapolis Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
