Iridescent light : the emergence of northwest art by Deloris Tarzan Ament( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Iridescent Light, the distinguished art critic Deloris Tarzan Ament profiles twenty-one of these artists who lived and worked in Washington State during formative periods in their careers. The author blends discussion of their work with commentary on the obstacles they faced and the influences they brought to bear on one another, showing not only how artistic visions were shaped but also how encouragement from a few farseeing patrons enabled the very survival of these artists. Essays are illustrated by Mary Randlett's photographs, taken over half a century."--Jacket
600 moons : fifty years of Philip McCracken's art by Deloris Tarzan Ament( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philip McCracken is a native son of the Northwest whose art may be regional, but it is never provincial. McCracken's sculpture has been informed as much by the time he spent working in Henry Moore's studio and during a sojourn in New York as a young artist as it has been by the flora, fauna, and climate of Western Washington. Famous for his birds, he refuses to be pinned down to one theme or medium; McCracken's probing creativity and quest for both significant subjects and formal perfection have also manifested in art about war, humorous tableaux, future fossils, and in paintings and sculptures of the night sky." "Published in conjunction with a retrospective exhibition organized by the Museum of Northwest Art, 600 Moons: Fifty Years of Philip McCracken's Art is the first comprehensive publication on the artist since 1980. Deloris Tarzan Ament recounts McCracken's formative experiences on Puget Sound and traces his career from early studies of art to his first solo show in New York in 1960 to the present. The text incorporates numerous unpublished artist statements, and chronicles a diverse body of work concerned with the profound mysteriousness of nature - and humanity. 600 Moons establishes McCracken as an important link between contemporary Northwest art and influential artists of the "Northwest School" who were his friends and exemplars. The book will be an important addition to the libraries of collectors, students, and lovers of contemporary American art and of the Pacific Northwest."--Jacket

"John Cole is a painter whose canvases, building on the compositional and coloristic freedom of the 20th-century masters, evoke the natural world of the Northwest in its rugged variety. This catalogue of retrospective exhibition at the Whatcom Museum of History & Art samples thirty years of his painting and graphic work; it includes images of such diverse natural features as towering Alaskan glaciers and rushing Oregon waterfalls."--Jacket
