Art of the North American Indians : the Thaw Collection by N.Y.) Fenimore Art Museum (Cooperstown( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art of the North American Indians is a sumptuous and comprehensive examination of Native American art. While the collection it records began with a personal interest on the part of Eugene and Clare Thaw in Native art featuring the American flag, it soon grew beyond that theme, as they sought to create a representative collection of masterpieces to be given to the public. The result is an extraordinary assemblage of rare and important examples of American Indian art. Objects date from 500 B.C. to the present day, and give an effective and comprehensive overview of the highest artistic levels of American Indian culture throughout North America. The book includes general introductions for each of the eight culture areas--Woodlands, Plains, Southwest, California, Great Basin, Northwest Coast, Northern Athapaskan, and Arctic--as well as 34 regional sections. Superb color photographs by John Bigelow Taylor of 260 objects are accompanied by detailed discussions, and 510 black-and-white photographs of the remaining objects are interspersed throughout the text. The majority of works are from the historic period, but both ancient and contemporary pieces are also included

Evidence : the art of Candy Jernigan by Candy Jernigan( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Little known outside New York's avant-garde art world during her life, the late artist Candy Jernigan was a dedicated collector of unusual evidence. Committed to documenting "any and all physical 'proof' that I had been there," Jernigan transformed the mundane stuff of the world into witty and astoundingly resonant works of art." "Jernigan filled her journals with traces of food she'd eaten, scraps of paper, bits of leaves, and old bottle caps - all lovingly labeled and sealed in transparent envelopes. Her more formal works are equally reflective of her compulsive desire to collect and document: Found Dope is an exquisitely detailed arrangement of all the crack vials Jernigan found near her New York apartment over one sixteen-day period; the Dead Bug Book is a compendium of beautifully rendered, very dead insects that flew in the artist's window; Ten Kinds of Beans: Homage to Goya is her pencil and pastel rendition of bean cans that does less to honor the famous Spanish painter than the brand of beans that shares his name." "An eye-opening art book that offers a transformative vision of the things most of us try to ignore, Evidence is also a bold testament to Jernigan's one-of-a-kind talent."--Jacket

Paul Stankard : homage to nature by Ulysses G Dietz( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since childhood, nature has always been important to Paul Stankard, and now as the world's leading glass paperweight artist, this interest has become the defining signature of his work. Flowers such as roses, lilacs, and orchids are depicted as are a host of fantasy flowers that the artist creates in his studio, located in southern New Jersey. To look at a Stankard paperweight is to be momentarily fooled into believing that the artist has preserved a living flower in glass, when, in fact, he has created one entirely from spun filaments. Equally present are insects such as bees and damselflies, or blueberries and glistening raspberries. Certainly the most unusual features are his earth spirits or "root people," tawny colored creatures deliberately made to resemble living plant roots. Words, too, play a role, again reinforcing natural processes. Here the artist creates mosaic word canes, spelling out words like seed, wet, and scent, to name a few, which he then embeds in his floral creations. A more complex application of Stankard's paperweight skill is the formation of what the artist calls botanicals, which are upright cloistered glass objects, sometimes in diptych and triptych formations. Each is a unique object and each is a highly sophisticated and elegant tribute to nature's beauty. In Paul Stankard: Homage to Nature, decorative arts curator Ulysses Grant Dietz writes with ease and affection about this gregarious, immensely talented artist. With a background in technical glassmaking Stankard began creating his first paperweights in 1971; by the end of that decade he had become nationally known. Today his work is in the collections of such museums as The Corning Museum of Glass; The Art Institute of Chicago; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Philadelphia Museum of Art; and the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution. More than 180 photographs by fine arts photographer John Bigelow Taylor display close to 200 paperweights and botanicals made by Paul Stankard. Also included are photographs showing the actual preparation and assembly of the flowers, root people, and insects encased in glass. No other glass art book has ever shown a glass artist's process of creation as it is depicted here. Collectors of glass and beautiful objects will be dazzled and moved by the artistry and appreciation Paul Stankard brings to natural forms. -- from dust jacket
