You’ll love this issue of Southwest Art if:
- You love discovering the best Native American artists
- You love exploring new trends in Native American Art
- You love the composed elegance of the still-life painting
In the April issue of Southwest Art you’ll meet Native American artists Nocona Burgess and Mike Larsen. Artist Nocona Burgess grew up listening to the history-making stories of his famous Comanche ancestors and being encouraged to draw and paint by artistic parents. Today, Burgess brings to the canvas remarkable members of the Comanche Nation, people, he says, who have stories to tell. Read more about his history-book-making ancestors and view his award-winning work in the April issue.
After studying art in college and with David Leffel at the Art Students League of New York, Mike Larsen and his wife began a journey of discovery into his Chickasaw heritage as well as other Native tribes. Today Larsen is in high demand to paint and sculpt scenes from Native American history. Learn more about his personal artistic style and his monumental sculptures and murals documenting contemporary and historical Native American stories.
Also in the issue learn about landscape painter Jake Gaedtke and pyrographer Julie Bender, take a tour of New Mexico painter Ethelinda’s Santa Fe studio, and meet six painters who bring everyday objects into the spotlight in our still-life portfolio.
The April issue features previews of the best art shows around America from New Jersey to Los Angeles with stops in Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Washington state, and Vancouver, BC.
