Rick Bartow at Missoula Art Museum

Dog’s Journey: A 20 Year Survey
Missoula Art Museum
November 4, 2011 – January 31, 2012

Missoula Art Museum is honored and delighted to host Dog’s Journey: A 20 Year Survey by one of the region’s most celebrated artists. Rick Bartow was born on the coast of Oregon at Newport in 1946, not far from his ancestral lands in northern California. Bartow is a Native American of Wiyot heritage and this cultural foundation has played a large role in his art as a source of imagery and story. Additionally, he has always acknowledged a deep debt to contemporary Native American artists such as Fritz Scholder, Joe Feddersen, Lillian Pitt, and James Lavadour.
