Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book attempts a comprehensive compilation of previously ungathered sources concerning self-taught American artists who draw or paint, carve or sculpt, make assemblages, or create art environments. Profiles of galleries, museums, and recent exhibitions focusing on contemporary folk and outsider art include notes on the artists represented. Abstracts cover 459 books and exhibit catalogs, 645 periodical articles, 362 newspaper articles, and 66 audio or visual materials. Brief biographical sketches are included for more than 1000 artists. Contacts for national and regional organizations and a listing of art environments currently open to the public are given. Completing the work is an index that cross-references artists featured throughout this directory. Complementing Chuck and Jan Rosenak's biographical dictionary, Museum of American Folk Art Encyclopedia of Twentieth-Century American Folk Art and Artists (Abbeville, 1990), this is a unique addition for larger art collections.-- Judith Yankielun Lind, Roseland Free P.L., N.J.
Booknews
A comprehensive resource guide to American naive art. The authors conducted extensive library and field research to find as many outlets and artists around the US as possible that feature these types of artists and media. The volume, which collects previously unavailable or ungathered information, is organized in four distinct sections that list museums, galleries, artists, and publications that pertain to folk, self taught, or outsider art. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

This is a classified directory and bibliography of information sources on twentieth-century folk art in the continental U.S. The compiler explains the use of overlapping words in the title, stating that the words "folk", "self-taught", "outside", "primitive", and "naive" all have defenders; the terms are used interchangeably in the work The first chapter is a directory of commercial galleries, arranged alphabetically under state and city, with address, telephone number, director, and artists whose work is sold by the gallery Succeeding chapters list art centers where the disabled or elderly can create and museums with lists of the artists represented in collections, The chapter on art centers lists only 12 centers , and seven are in California. The chapter on museums does not name the curators of folk art. A short chapter follows that lists selected museum exhibitions held after 1989 and indicates the existence of an accompanying exhibition catalog; next is a chapter on national and regional organizations offering "opportunities for camaraderie" and programs about folk art The second half of the work is bibliography, with the exception of a brief chapter listing eight institutions offering the study of folk art. The bibliographic chapters cite newsletters and magazines, books and exhibition catalogs, periodical articles, newspaper articles, and audiovisual materials. Items are alphabetically arranged under author. Each entry has a short descriptive annotation. A 16-page section of good-quality color reproductions of folk art in various media is inserted in the center of the book. Similar small black-and-white illustrations are placed at the start of each chapter A final chapter lists folk artists alphabetically by name. There is a great range in the biographical information provided. Some entries include birth year, birthplace, current address, telephone number, and the gallery selling the biographee's art, but others lack some of this data. Concluding the work are an appendix of "art environments" gardens, grottoes, parks, etc. where folk art by one or more artists is displayed, and a 20-page index of folk artists, exhibitions, and art environments Providing a wealth of information about a genre that ranges from paintings to religious carvings to whirligigs, this work will have use in libraries where there is interest in folk art. "Folk Artists Biographical Index" Gale, 1987 provides information on more than 9,000 artists from the 17th century to the present. It tells which museums hold their work and provides reference to biographical sources. It does not list commercial galleries, art environments, and many of the other sources found in "20th Century American Folk, Self Taught, and Outsider Art".
