This comprehensive introduction to art and design explores making artifacts as a process of making meaning. Making Art: Form and Meaning offers a framework for understanding how all the aspects of an artwork--subject matter, medium, form, process, and contexts--interact. The text's wide array of examples and its emphasis on late-modernism and postmodern art give students a thorough look at the expressive possibilities of traditional design elements and principles and contemporary practices, including the use of computer-based, time-based, and lens-based media. With artist quotes, clearly defined key terms, and a chapter dedicated to studio critiques, Making Art allows students to join the conversation of contemporary art and gives them a jump start in thinking and talking about their work using the language and concepts of today's art world.

Sensations of Art-making: Triumphs, Torments and Risk-taking is an exhibition curated by Purnima Ruanglertbutr that documents the collection of works by professional artist-teachers, who are graduates of Melbourne University’s Master of Teaching (Secondary Art) program. The works in this show demand attention by illustrating with sensitivity the triumphs, torments and risk-taking inherent to professional artistic practice. Each of these artists is treading the difficult pathway of moving into the world of teaching while retaining their artist identity. For some, this transition into the classroom is still to come. For others they are one, two or even three years into lesson planning, staff meetings, sports days and report writing. Theirs is the reality of conflict between their art production and being a teacher - two seemingly incompatible worlds. Through participation in this exhibition, they are beginning to fashion a mechanism for keeping alive their passion for art, while also nurturing a career teaching art to the next generation. This exhibition catalogue documents the work of early-career visual art educators and insightful commentaries by the artist teachers themselves - these are artworks produced during those critical first years after teacher training. Some exhibits explicitly address the role of art making within the teaching process. Others purposefully avoid issues to do with the classroom by illustrating the artists’ ongoing development of a private professional practice. Either way, these are critical pieces of information in the elusive phenomenon of the ‘artist-teacher’.
Rembrandt (1606-1669) is generally regarded as the finest painter of the Dutch "Golden Age." This new edition of Art in the Making: Rembrandt (published on the 400th anniversary of the artist's birth) reexamines 21 paintings firmly attributed to Rembrandt and 6 now assigned to followers. It reassesses his technique, materials, and working methods in the light of significant scholarly developments over the last 20 years, addressing problems of attribution that were hardly touched on in the original, groundbreaking edition of 1988. Introductory essays by distinguished conservation, curatorial, and scientific specialists cover the artist's studio and working methods, the training of painters in 17th-century Holland, and Rembrandt's materials and technique. The essays are followed by handsomely illustrated catalogue entries on 27 paintings. A comprehensive bibliography provides a rich source of information about the practice of oil painting, not only for Rembrandt but for 17th-century Dutch painting in general.
Journey through the craft of Making Art with Maps. From origami to paper cutting and decoupage, love of paper crafting has soared, and with it the variety of paper types used by artists. Among these are maps - an apt choice for any crafter: they're easy to find, often free, meant to be folded, and their colorful surfaces add an allure of travel to every project. Making Art from Maps is equal parts inspiration and fun. Jill K. Berry, author of Map Art Lab returns, bringing her expertise in maps and her wide-ranging skills as an artist with her. With her cartographic connections, she takes you on a gallery tour, introducing you to the work of some of the most exciting artists creating with maps today. Designer interviews are accompanied by 25 accessible how-to projects of her own design that teach many of the techniques used by the gallery artists.

A biography of the artist Dumile Feni, describing his difficult childhood and struggle to survive as an artist, his many years in exile in England and the United States of America, his drawings and sculptures, and his early death.
Their work, both celebrated and controversial, depicts stories from the Buddha's lives in otherworldly landscapes punctuated with sly references to this-worldly politics and popular culture. Schooled in international art trends, the artists reverse an Orientalist narrative of the Asian Other, telling their own stories to diverse audiences and subsuming Western spaces into a Buddhist worldview."--BOOK JACKET.
Women have been making art for centuries, yet their work has been seen as secondary or has gone unrecognized altogether. Women Making Art asks why this is so, and what it would take for us to realize the extent of women's extraordinary contribution to the arts. Marsha Meskimmon mobilizes contemporary feminist thinking to reconsider how and why women have made art. She examines work by a wide range of women artists from different cultures and historical periods, including Rebecca Horn, Rachel Whiteread, Shirin Neshat and Maya Lin, emphasizing the diversity of women's art and the importance of differences between women.
