Biography Michael McCullough

Biography from the Archives of askART

The following information is from William Kaye who wrote the following about a painting by Michael McCullough, which Kaye and his wife placed over the fireplace in their living room: 

When my wife Cindy and I were in the southwestern U.S. in April/May 1989, we bought this watercolor, depicting Three Indian Pottery Vases, representing three Indian tribes in New Mexico: the Zuni, the Acoma, and the ancient Anasazi. The artist, Michael McCullough is a Native American. The vase shown at the right in the painting is based on shards excavated by the archaeologists working for the Public Service Company in New Mexico. The shards are then cataloged by the state and given back to the company, where they are made available to artists such as Michael McCullough. The shards, shown at the bottom of the work of art, date back to 1100-1250 A.D. and were probably Anasazi relics. The other two vases are traditional Zuni and Acoma vases.

From a gallery I found this biography:

Michael C. McCullough (and his twin brother Stephen) is well known throughout the Southwest over the past 30 years for his strong, vibrant paintings. As a Native American (member of the Choctaw Nation) he specializes in original paintings of authentic images reflecting the culture and history of the Southwest. His works may be seen at several galleries in the New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado areas as well as Santa Fe Indian Market, Heard Museum Indian Market (Phoenix), Eight Northern
Pueblo Market (Espanola, NM) and many more.
