James Lavadour (Walla Walla) continues to be one of the Northwest’s most revered painters. He is widely recognized for his abstract landscapes, structured and reinterpreted from the geography of his lifelong home, the Umatilla Indian Reservation. He is self-educated in art, describing the artistic process as gestures of painting that are their own acts of nature, similar to the landscapes they represent. Lavadour founded Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts as a reservation-based nonprofit organization in 1992. He has received numerous awards, including the Eiteljorg Fellowship for Native American Fine Art in 2005, Award for Visual Arts from the Flintridge Foundation in 2004, Oregon Governor’s Arts Award in 1994, and the Betty Bowen Award in 1991.
