Format: Hardcover
One-Hundred Artists Of The Southwest by Douglas Bullis is an informative and seminal collection of succinct biographical descriptions and vividly authored portraits of the one hundred most important artists living and working in New Mexico and Arizona today. Providing the reader with representative samples of their photography, paintings, drawings, sculptures, pottery, weaving, and jewelry, One-Hundred Artists Of The Southwest deftly explores the lives of these artists ranging from Native American contemporary and ancestral visionaries to Hispanic updated representative presentations of religious icons. One-Hundred Artists Of The Southwest is very strongly recommended for personal, academic, and community library collections for its in-depth and informative content, enhanced with over four-hundred full-color illustrations stimulating an appreciation for southwestern-American artistic culture. Also highly recommended as a companion volume is Douglas Bullis', 100 Artists Of The West Coast (0764-319310, $39.95)

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Sherri Silverman on July 22, 2007
Format: Hardcover
100 Artists of the Southwest is an overlooked but excellent introduction to 100 of the top contemporary visual artists in the southwest in all media, selected by the editor. Artists describe their work in two-page spread with statements, color images, and photos. Most of the artists are in Santa Fe, but others are from various parts of New Mexico and Arizona. I don't agree with all of the choices, but I was happy to see Erika Blumenfeld, Cathy Aten, the New Mexico Capitol Art Collection, Alexandra Eldridge, Florence Pierce, Tom Joyce, Meridel Rubenstein, Emmi Whitehorse, and myself (Sherri Silverman) represented in this book.

Format: Hardcover
This coffee table book features works of 100 artists in New Mexico and Arizona. Over 400 full color photographs cover a wide range of art from paintings, pottery and weavings to sculptures, jewelry and photographs. The variety of style is alluring and demands a slow pace through the book. Then a nice touch is having a picture of each artist. A glimpse of the person doing the art always lets us imagine something a little more about them. Each featured artist also tells why and how they work, and some more compelling than others. Even the author notes that visual art is separate from words and says, "Trying to explain an artist is like trying to dissect a raindrop." He wanted to "waste no ink" on criticism but present a collection that spoke wholly for itself, and it does succeed.
