“Each print represents a triple threat of aesthetic and technical excellence combined with compelling subject matter. Crow’s Shadow Institute fosters work by Native American artists and this infusion also helps build our growing holdings of works on paper by Indigenous artists.”

At Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts, our primary artistic focus is on the multifaceted medium of printmaking. Through our ongoing residency program Crow’s Shadow works with emerging and established artists of diverse media and artistic backgrounds. Invited artists collaborate with a Tamarind Master Printer with the goal of creating one or more lithographic editions.
“Landscape painting affords me a wealth of tradition and influence, and provides a platform that seems familiar and recognizable. 19th century romanticism, Japanese woodblock prints, and Abstract expressionism all factor into my works vocabulary.”
