Native American Art in the contemporary world
Some collectors and scholars espouse the concept that the only genuine Native American arts are those that were made in the 1800s or before. At Home & Away, we believe that Native American artists are entitled to produce art in whatever fashion they wish to pursue. Today’s artists have access to concepts, materials and techniques that were not available to their ancestors. Their art will reflect current ideas, and should not be restricted to those of their ancestors.
At the same time, we admire artists who embrace their culture and traditions, while also adding their own concepts and aesthetics. Native American art is alive and evolving; there should be no restrictions on its creation.
We are constantly on the lookout for artists that break boundaries while they respect their traditions. We hand pick every item we carry, and we stand behind everything we sell. Rest assured that, in this world where there are many imitators of Native American Art, we deal only in the genuine.
David Shultz, gallery director of Home & Away, published Baskets of Time: Profiles of Contemporary Maine Basket Makers in 2017. Baskets of Time is an ideal tool for collectors who want to learn more about the weavers they already know or for people who want an introduction to the beautiful basket work produced by the members of the four Wabanaki tribes in Maine.
