  • For centuries Native Americans have been creating unique art forms and carefully passing these forms down from generation to generation. Some of these forms, such as drums, pottery and beaded jewelry are hundreds of years old. Today there are skilled Native American artists who are creating fine art in both traditional and contemporary styles. The Native art community is a vibrant one with hundreds of highly skilled artists who maintain the highest levels of craftsmanship and technical excellence. They honor their ancestors, cultural heritage and the artistic legacies passed down to them, while also pushing the boundaries of what Native American art is. In this illuminating volume, author Douglas Bullis explores the work of some of the premier Native American artist working in the Southwest, along with Hispanic artists who create exciting work that draws upon their religious and cultural heritage.
