About this title:

Synopsis:

Art in Our Lives grew out of the conversations of a group of Native women artists who spoke frankly about the roles, responsibilities, and commitments in their lives while balancing this existence with their art practice. Finding common ground, they started out as a small group of six that eventually grew to eleven who ranged in age from seventy to twenty-seven with backgrounds as diverse as their ages. Together they recognized their experiences, acknowledging that what they shared was not unique to them since other Native women artists could speak to similar life realities. How often such experiences were actually shared became the larger issue. The topics these women thoughtfully discussed resulted in this book at the initiation of the artists, some of whom also contributed essays.

The artists participated in three seminars at SAR in 2007-2008 culminating in a one-day exhibition with an artist panel discussion at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe. Diverse in media and content, their artworks are featured as plates in this volume along with the artist statements that accompanied the pieces in the exhibition] The chapters in this book reflect some of the seminars' common threads such as home/place, transgression/boundaries, art as healing/art as struggle, pain/joy, art practice/work, and survival/colonization.

Publication of this book was made possible by the generous support of the Anne Ray Charitable Trust and the National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution. The Anne Ray Charitable Trust also supported the seminars on which this publication is based.

From the Back Cover: Art in Our Lives is the culmination of three seminars at SAR's Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) that brought together Native women artists to discuss the balancing of their art practice with the myriad roles, responsibilities, and commitments they have. The first seminar took place in November 2007 when six Native women artists gathered to begin a project then titled "Art, Gender, and Ceremony." Most of the invited artists were past IARC artist fellows: Gloria J. Emerson (Diné), Sherry Farrell Racette (Timiskaming First Nation), Erica Lord (Athabaskan/ Iñupiaq/Finnish/Swedish/English/Japanese), Felice Lucero (San Felipe Pueblo), Eliza Naranjo Morse (Santa Clara Pueblo), and Diane Reyna (Taos Pueblo/Ohkay Owingeh). The initial two-day meeting resulted in insightful, heartfelt, and difficult discussions regarding the role of these women as Native and Artist. Many of the same topics were revisited in February 2008 when the original six artists reconvened, inviting five additional women artists to participate in a session titled "Creative Reflections of Enduring Women." The intent was to provide mentorship to emerging Native women artists; create a safe space for dialogue on important issues relative to their roles as women, artists, and community members; and to support and critique the development of a body of work (painting, poetry, performance art, and so on) based on the issues and ideas discussed in the seminars. The additional artists were: Heidi K. Brandow (Navajo/Native Hawaiian), Lara Evans (Cherokee), Shannon Letandre (Anishinaabe/Cree), TahNibaa Naataanii (Diné), and Dyani Reynolds-White Hawk (Sicangu Lakota/German/Welsh). In June 2008 the eleven artists returned to Santa Fe to share their completed works with one another and the general public. This session was titled "Playing, Remembering, Making: Art in Native Women's Lives." Later in the day, the public was invited to an exhibition of the art and panel discussions with the artists. The artworks were diverse in media and content and are featured in the plates section of this volume, along with the artist statements that accompanied the pieces in the exhibit. The chapters reflect some of the seminars' emerging themes: gender, home/crossing, and art as healing/art as struggle.
