Rick Bartow

Rick Bartow (Wiyot), December 16, 1946 - April 2, 2016
Bartow was a Vietnam Veteran, a life-long musician and song-writer, a widower, an enrolled member of the Wiyot Indians, and is considered one of the most important leaders in contemporary Native American art. His art was subject of over 100 solo exhibitions at museums and galleries, including the retrospective Things You Know But Cannot Explain, organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at University of Oregon, and accompanied with a fully illustrated monograph. His passion was working in the studio and engaging with peers in the ancient and current worlds of self expression. Transformation, bold gesture and articulate line are only three elements to consider in Rick Bartow's art.
