Artists › Rick Bartow
Rick Bartow is one of Oregon's most important artists, and is increasingly gaining a national and international audience. Central to Bartow's work is the theme of connection and transformation, particularly between the human and animal realms, and between corporeal and spiritual dimensions of existence. Bartow's great-grandfather left his Wiyot tribal homeland in northern California nearly 100 years ago to homestead in Oregon, where the Bartow family has lived ever since.

Bartow was awarded an Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art in 2001.
