|KEVIN RED STAR
Kevin Red Star
was born on the Crow Indian Reservation in Lodge Grass, Montana - the
third oldest in a family of eight. His father had an abiding interest in
music, and his mother is a skilled craftswoman. In this nurturing
environment, Kevin developed early artistic capability.
In 1962, Kevin's formal art education began at the Institute of
American Indian Art (IAIA) when he was selected to be among the first
150 students for this experimental Native American art school in Santa
Fe. Here Kevin was exposed to various mediums and expressions of art,
learning the fundamentals of art from the finest Native American
teachers. In 1974, Kevin was asked to return to IAIA to participate in
their Artist-in-Residence program. While in Santa Fe, he expanded his
art to include stone lithography, serigraphs and etchings.
In 1965, Kevin won a scholarship to the San Francisco Art Institute.
As a freshman, he was awarded the Governor's Trophy, and the Al and
Helen Baker Award from the Scottsdale National Indian Arts Exhibition.
Kevin continues studies at Montana State Universty in Bozeman and
Eastern Montana College in Billings.
In 1997, Kevin Red Star received an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Fine Art from the Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana.
Kevin Red Star has emerged
as the premier Northern Plains fine artist. Notable developments are
even more exciting use of color and refined graphic design aspects in
his latest work. As an art collector recently commented: "He is among
the Masters and will, during his life, enjoy status as such."
