Black Elk's Great Grandson

by James Bama

Clifton DeSerca, a Sioux, lives and works in the modern world but has strong ties to the last days of the free-roaming horseback Native American of the plains. His great-grandfather was Black Elk, a Sioux holy man whose autobiography is considered one of the most important pieces of Native American literature. As a young man, Black Elk participated in the battle of the Little Big Horn. In his older years, he told his story to John G. Neihardt who translated it into the classic Black Elk Speaks. DeSerca serves his people by being involved in a reservation outreach program working with alcoholics. He is portrayed here wearing a Sioux headdress and a historic shirt from the trading-post period.

Four Corners

by Bev Doolittle

"Horses are such social animals and seem to emulate human behavior. Whatever their pecking order or whatever they may be communicating to each other, I always wonder what is going on," says Bev Doolittle, who captures a moment at a crossroads where horses have called an impromptu meeting. "Regardless of the space they have to roam, horses have nonetheless come from all corners of their world to gather like neighbors meeting over the backyard fence or a coffee klatch on a Sunday morning."

Speaking Through Stones

Bev Doolittle, who gained such renown for reproductions of her original camouflage paintings, now pleases art lovers once again in the form of new, original, hand-pulled, stone lithographs. The imagery reflects the artist’s love of horses, passion for the natural world and her affinity for the Native American’s spiritual relationship to the land. With some editions set at as few as 20 pieces, these original lithos are already “rare.” Stone lithographs are regarded as originals because they are not reproductions of existing art. Lithography literally means “writing on stone.” An image is drawn in reverse on stone and is then translated to the paper through the hand-inking process. Only once this process is complete does the artwork we see exsist. To learn more about the art of creating an original lithograph visit: www.greenwichworkshop.com/doolittle
