ABOUT CROW'S SHADOW
This raffle drawing is a fundraiser for Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts, an artist residency program, fine print studio, and publisher located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation in the foothills of Oregon’s Blue Mountains. Our mission is to provide a creative conduit for educational, social, and economic opportunities for Native Americans through artistic development. Crow’s Shadow is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization formed in 1992 by local artists James Lavadour (Walla Walla) and Phillip Cash Cash (Cayuse and Nez Perce). Over the last 26 years Crow’s Shadow has evolved into a world-class studio focused on contemporary fine art printmaking.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
James Lavadour’s artwork is deeply connected to the landscapes of his ancestral homelands in eastern Oregon. He grew up in the foothills of the Blue Mountains on the Umatilla Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon. An avid hiker, Lavadour’s connection to this geography is reflected in the slow and labor-intensive processes he undertakes in his daily painting practice. Paint becomes a vehicle to mimic the gradual layering and subsequent erosion, exposing the trace of previous vestiges of color. Lavadour favors translucent glazes, which leave hints of each preceding layer, creating tremendous depth and luminosity through these topographical surfaces. Often juxtaposing vivid color with subdued passages, each painting strikes a balance between serenity and optical vibration.

Lavadour has been making artwork and exhibiting for more than four decades. Long held in high esteem among the art world in the Pacific Northwest, Lavadour’s paintings have also been shown in numerous major institutions throughout the United States, with more national recognition building over the last ten years. Lavadour has exhibited at: The Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian (in both Washington, DC and New York, NY); The Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, IN; Portland Art Museum in Portland, OR; the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR; and the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe, NM, among many others. Notably, Lavadour, with the assistance of his Portland gallerist, Jane Beebe of PDX Contemporary, were invited to bring a large grid of 15 of his paintings to show in Personal Structures at the Palazzo Bembo in the 2013 Venice Biennale. In 2018 his work was added to the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
