About the Artist

Earl Biss was born in Washington state in 1947. He was raised by his grandmother on the Crow reservation in Montana. Biss was awarded two scholarships to pursue his education. One was from the Institute of American Indian Art in Santa Fe where he studied under the guidance of Fritz Scholder. The other was from the San Francisco Art Institute from which he graduated in 1971.

Showings of his work have taken place at the Riverside Museum in New York City; the Museum of New Mexico in Santa Fe; the U.S. Department of the Interior in Washington, D.C.; the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; the Washington State Pavillion at the 1970 World’s Fair in Osala, Japan; the San Jose Museum of Fine Arts in California and the Warehouse Gallery in Yakima, Washington.

A painterly artist, Earl Biss’ compositions often begin with a realistic investigation of Indian camp rivalries, midnight raids, the hunt and also the severe winters in the Big Horn Mountains in the vicinity of Yellowstone. 

Mr. Biss died while painting in his studio in 1998.
