Totems & Guardians
Metal artist Rod Kagan (1940-2010) was one of the most important American sculptors to come out of Idaho, yet few have seen the scope and breath his entire body of work.

Betsy Eby’s recent encaustic paintings bridge the visible and the invisible worlds through the exploration of a highly personal visual language that links image and emotion. Her evocative images of nature are contemporary examples of a tradition of painting descended from Romanticism, a tradition that insists that a work of art is both an outward expression and an inner exploration, affirming that a successful work of art must communicate with the viewer on both formal and intuitive levels simultaneously.
Dual Nature is the first monograph to explore the remarkable life and career of American artist Jane Rosen, whose work in stone, glass, and on paper spans more than four decades.

Home and the World: A View of Calcutta
This exquisitely produced book features a selection of McPhee’s works made in and around India’s former capital. Here we glimpse courtyards, living spaces, temples, and altars as both vestiges of the past and elements of contemporary urban existence. McPhee’s images sensitively penetrate the surface to show the blurred boundaries between social classes, the blending of public and private life, and the resonance between India and other parts of the world. Also included are a foreword by Amitav Ghosh and an essay by art historian Romita Ray on the ways McPhee captures and distills the remnants of colonial Calcutta in her photographs of the contemporary city.
River of No Return

McPhee depicts the magnificence and history of the Sawtooth Valley in central Idaho. Her subject matter includes the region’s spectacular mountain ranges, rivers, and ranchlands; its immense spaces and natural resources; the effects of mining and devastating wildfires; and the human stories of those who live and work there.
