Item No: 25208

$ 35.00

  • Toba Tucker's expressive portraits honoring Pueblo artists were made over a two-and-a-half year sojourn in the Southwest. These photographs form a record for history and art at the end of the twentieth century and portray Tucker's interest in the individuals and families who pass their artistic traditions from one generation to the next. The portraits reflect the sense of belonging that she so evidently found among the people who welcomed her into their homes, and they attest to her abiding respect and deep appreciation for the native traditions that continue to carry the Pueblo spirit.

  • 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.
