Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. The Center for Indigenous Arts & Cultures is proud to present the third volume in our "American Indian Art Series." The first volume is Hopi-Tewa Pottery: 500 Artist Biographies. The second volume, Pueblo Indian Pottery: 750 Artist Biographies, profiles six Rio Grande Tewa Pueblos located in northern New Mexico. This third volume presents brief biographical profiles of American Indian textile artists. They are organized into three groups: "Navajo Weavers," "Pueblo Textile Artists," and "Other Native American Textile Artists." The purpose of the series is to introduce people to American Indian artists and their fine arts. This volume profiles over 2,000 artists from the past two centuries, featuring 600 artist portraits and more than 1,000 textiles. This book was created with the cooperation of American Indian artists and their friends. Through artist surveys, archival research and personal interviews, information was collected in 25 categories: including the artist's pueblo, moiety (social group), clan (group of extended families), active years, lifespan, family relationships, education, teachers, students, awards, demonstrations, exhibitions, collections, favorite designs, publications and twenty years of auction records. Many artists completed a personal statement, "I enjoy creating artwork, because. . ." Some wrote or narrated autobiographical statements. Future volumes will feature jewelers, basketmakers, beadworkers, painters, sculptors, carvers, and other American Indian artists.
