Contemporary Art of the Southwest, Hardback Book

Contemporary Art of the Southwest Hardback


The stark beauty of the Southwest mountains and deserts have attracted numerous artists working in many media.

Painters, sculptors, potters, jewelers, and photographers study and work in this region, which is steeped in rich heritage and natural beauty.

This eye-catching book contains a thoughtfully written foreword by Julie Sasse, Chief Curator and Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Tucson Museum of Art, and over 600 compelling photos of the contemporary artwork from Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The materials used are varied, ranging from stoneware to steel and everything in between.

The subject matter includes the natural landscape, wildlife, and human life, historical scenes, and whimsical imagery, in forms both realistic and abstract.

Each artist provides valuable insight into their work.

The author states that the book's intent is to take a fresh look at the magical and insightful ways the area's artists have interpreted life in this region.

That it does.
