Ledger art has traditionally been created by men to recount the lives of male warriors on the Plains. During the past forty years, this form has been adopted by Native female artists, who are turning previously untold stories of women’s lifestyles and achievements into ledger-style pictures. While there has been a resurgence of interest in ledger art, little has been written about these women ledger artists. Women and Ledger Art calls attention to the extraordinary achievements of these strong women who have chosen to express themselves through ledger art. Author Richard Pearce foregrounds these contributions by focusing on four contemporary women ledger artists: Sharron Ahtone Harjo (Kiowa), Colleen Cutschall (Oglala Lakota), Linda Haukaas (Sicangu Lakota), and Dolores Purdy Corcoran (Caddo). Pearce spent six years in continual communication with the women, learning about their work and their lives. Women and Ledger Art examines the artists and explains how they expanded Plains Indian history. With 46 stunning images of works in various mediums—from traditional forms on recovered ledger pages to simulated quillwork and sculpture, Women and Ledger Art reflects the new life these women have brought to an important transcultural form of expression.

What is Indian art? There have been many attempts to define it, but the so-called Santa Fe style of the 1930s?placid, two-dimensional depictions of traditional scenes?set the standard by which subsequent art by Native Americans would be judged. Art that radically challenged the stereotype?the work of Joe Herrera, Fritz Scholder, and T. C. Cannon, for example?met with resistance; questions were raised about its authenticity as Indian art. Today's Indian art has resoundingly overturned old preconceptions: here are cartoon figures in throbbing neon colors, "decorated" grocery bags, messages to America on the Spectacolor billboard in Times Square, delicate abstractions and cubist images, work that ranges from monotype and photography to mixed media and clay, from humor and biting commentary to quiet introspection. I Stand in the Center of Good, the first book of its kind, offers a forum for seventeen contemporary Native American artists to speak about the development of their art, their creative processes, how they define their art, and how it relates to their Indianness. The interviews are handsomely illustrated with works by the artists, who include Rick Glazer-Danay, Shan Goshorn, Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds, Rick Hill, G. Peter Jemison, Michael Kabotie, Frank LaPena, Carm Little Turtle, Linda Lomahaftewa, George Longfish, Mario Martinez, Nora Naranjo-Morse, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Susan Stewart, Frank Tuttle, Kay WalkingStick, and Emmi Whitehorse.

The Old Becomes the New: New York Movement in Contemporary Native Art and the New York School, an historical survey exhibition of twenty three contemporary Native American artists living and working in New York City (1943-2013) together with five highly seminal artists of the New York School. This is the first exhibition revealing the historical relationship between the New York School and the evolution of Native modernism. The exhibition highlights a comprehensive selection of distinguished Native American artists, all members of the New York Contemporary Native American Arts Movement; one of the lesser known Native Arts movements in the United States outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, that is urban based. A select few of these artists were directly influenced by abstract expressionism, the New York School and, to a lesser extent, Pop art. Succeeding generations of Native artists continued some of the visual languages and sensibilities of their progenitors. Some used abstract-expressionist language and modernist language, as well as other visual references particular to their own traditions or self-expression. They produced work that was grandly diverse, sometimes reflecting the urban environment in which they found themselves. Some of the New York School artists in the show, who were themselves influenced by traditional Native American design aesthetic; who then influenced contemporary Native artists, in some cases personally are Roy Lichtenstein, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Theodoros Stamos and Esteban Vicente. Although he always proudly shared his Native heritage, The Rauschenberg Foundation has confirmed that this is the first ?Contemporary Native? show where the late Mr. Rauschenberg's work has been included.

In Shifting Grounds, art historian Kate Morris argues that Indigenous artists are expanding and reconceptualizing forms of landscape art, expressing Indigenous attitudes toward land and belonging even as they draw upon mainstream art practices. The resulting works are rarely if ever primarily visual representations, but instead evoke all five senses: from the overt sensuality of Kay WalkingStick's tactile paintings to the eerie soundscapes of Alan Michelson's videos and Postcommodity's installations, this landscape art resonates with a fully embodied subjectivity. In the works of these and other artists, Shifting Grounds explores themes of presence and absence, connection and dislocation, memory and commemoration, and power and resistance, illuminating the artists' sustained engagement not only with land and landscape but also with the history of representation itself.
