Tweed Museum of Art Schedule
Frizt Scholders work, Fritz Scholder: Last
Portraits will be displayed in the Tweed Museum of Art through January
13. Fritz Scholder is widely recognized as one of the most successful
and daring of contemporary Native American artists. The exhibition Last
Portraits presents fifty works created by Scholder in a variety
of media from 1980 - 2001, and focuses on the provocative skull and skeletal
images the artist has explored for many years. In the 1960s he became
internationally recognized for his unsentimental, non-stereotypical depictions
of Native American subjects which were strongly influenced by Pop and
abstract expressionistic art. Early on in his career, Scholder was heralded
as the leader of the New Indian Art Movement, about which
he said A merging of the traditional subject matter with the contemporary
idiom will give us a truer statement of the Indian. Since then he
has used his art to explore a variety of themes, including ancient Egypt,
dreams, death, vampires, and landscape forms. The son of an inveterate
collector who avidly collects himself, Scholder first studied art with
the famous Sioux painter Oscar Howe, then at the University of Wisconsin
Superior in the 1950s. After moving to California, he studied with Pop
Art realist Wayne Theibaud, receiving his Master of Fine Arts degree from
Arizona State University in 1964.
Neil Welliver: The Prints will be on display
through January 13. In cooperation with Alexandre Fine Art, New York,

of woodblock printmaking.

one in the same with the description of singing or expressing poetry.
For many tribes, artful expression is as essential as breathing.
