Family legacies : the art of Betye, Lezley, and Alison Saar by Jessica Dallow( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Family Legacies celebrates the remarkable art of Betye Saar and her daughters, Lezley and Alison Saar. It explores the sharing of artistic and spiritual traditions within a family and shows how to generations of women use art to express changing ideas about gender, race, and ethnicity. The formal and thematic parallels in this family's work reveal a fascinating glimpse into their creative dynamic. Each artist's response to contemporary social issues - identity, sexuality, spirituality, the female body, and stereotypes - emerges through creations that also possess great beauty."--BOOK JACKET
Betye Saar by Jane H Carpenter( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered one of America's premier assemblage artists, Betye Saar has been creating inspired pieces since the early 1960s. Saar began her career with printmaking, enameling, and costume design and then expanded to three dimensional assemblages and installations, exploring such subjects as mysticism, heritage, and women's work. Saar transforms orginary objects like keepsakes, old photographs, dried flowers, fabric scraps, and other materials into memory boxes invested with profound emotional power. The artist's imagery, drawn from social and political movements, spiritual systems, and visual cultures, blends black aesthetics, feminist art, and African art with modern and postmodern movements, popular culture, and personal memories."

Artist Betye Saar was born on July 30, 1926 in Los Angeles, California. She graduated with her B.A. degree in design from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1949. After graduation, Saar was briefly a social worker. She took graduate level classes working toward a career in design, but soon changed to fine art, making politically themed assemblages. Her first culturally explicit piece of artwork, and her most known work, was The Liberation of Aunt Jemima. In 1975, she was the first African American woman to have a solo show at the Whitney Museum of Art in New York. She received two National Endowment for the Arts awards, in 1974 and 1984, and in 2008, she was recognized for her career in art with the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Fine Arts from the Congressional Black Caucus.
