Art critic Everett and anthropologist Zorn (Univ. of Central Florida) team up to provide in-depth profiles of 70 Native artists of the modern era (20th century to present). Seeking to complement standard works on prominent Native artists (e.g., St. James Guide to Native North American Artists, ed. by R. Matuz, 1998), the authors have selected influential, albeit perhaps less widely known artists, based on "depth of artistic expression, impact on other artists, and rarity of vision." 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 studios, exhibitions, and museums. Lengthy entries offer information about artists' lives and the impact of 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. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers. M. Cedar Face Southern Oregon University
