Description : Working With Images: The Art of Art Therapists is an effort to give voice to the artist aspect of our identity as art therapists. This book is about how the artists work, how they learned to do it, why they do it. This book will give you glimpses of the memories, and perhaps the scars, of the artists. Be honored. The artists in this book know that it is good to make art and they make good art. Through their work they demonstrate their faith in the product and the process. For some of them, art making is their anchor, in the turbulent world of helping professions. For some, images come in response to their clients. For all of them, making art deepens and enriches their lives. Working With Images: The Art of Art Therapists is a presentation of artworks and contextual essays by professional art therapists. This book is foreworded by Don Siedien and includes an introduction that addresses the structure, rationale and intent of this book. The introduction is followed by the artist-therapists' contributions. Each art therapist's selected artworks are presented on one full page in the text. Immediately following the art piece(s) is a brief biographical sketch, a photo of the art therapist and his or her artist’s statement. From the very beginning of the art therapist profession in the United States there has been steady discussion of the relative importance of the 'artist' aspect of art therapies' professional identity. In the thirty years that the American Art Therapy Association has been in existence there have been few other topics that have generated as much interest and debate at the annual national conference. Over the past several years there has been growing interest in re-igniting our artistic passions and welcoming them back into our professional identity. This movement has been evidenced by a number of conference papers and workshops and professional journal articles focused on examining the integration of the artist and the therapist aspects of our work. Working With Images: The Art of Art Therapists presents art therapists as committed and serious, fine artists. This book will be a significant contribution to the literature, and identity, of the art therapy profession.

Description : This is the first full-length biography of the American artist Arthur B. Davies, who played a major role in twentieth-century American art's coming-of-age. It was Davies who made possible the landmark exhibitions of The Eight and The Rockwell Kent Independent, and in 1913 he emerged as the mastermind behind the Armory Show, the first large-scale display of European modern art in the United States. Drawing on extensive archival research, including previously unavailable letters and diaries, this book covers the breadth and depth of the artist's life and career, from his boyhood in Utica in the 1860s; through his close association with such artists and collectors as Robert Henri, John Sloan, Alfred Stieglitz, Lizzie Bliss, and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller; to his death in Italy in 1928 in the company of his mistress, with whom he had lived a secret double life as "David A. Owen" for more than twenty years. Included are 101 color and black-and-white illustrations of Davies's own work, ranging from romantic dream visions to fragmented cubist forms, as well as photographs depicting his family and friends.
