About the Author:

Extensive travel has given Duane and Sarah Preble a global perspective. Duane taught on two round-the-world Semester at Sea voyages with the Institute for Shipboard Education, University of Pittsburgh, and he has led study tours in the United States, Europe, and Japan for the University of Hawaii. Research for ARTFORMS has taken the Prebles to Europe and to towns and cities throughout the United States.

After completing his BA in painting, graphics, and sculpture at UCLA, Duane received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Hawaii. From 1961 to 1991 he was a member of the art faculty at the University of Hawaii as well as an exhibiting artist. He has taught a wide variety of courses, including introduction to the visual arts, art history, photography, drawing, and design. In 1975, Duane was selected for listing in Outstanding Educators of America.

Sarah studied art and psychology at St. Lawrence University and the University of Hawaii. After receiving her BA and Master of Library Science degrees from the University of Hawaii, she worked at the University of Hawaii libraries for several years before becoming an art librarian at the Hawaii State Library. She is listed in Who's Who of American Women.

The Prebles live at the edge of a tropical forest overlooking Honolulu and the Pacific Ocean. They are active in their community and have served on boards of governmental, environmental, and arts organizations. Duane is on the Board of Trustees of Hawaii's major art museum, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, and is a frequent consultant to art and educational organizations.

Revising author Patrick Frank is Assistant Professor of Art History at the University of Kansas, where he specializes in modern Latin American art. After receiving M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from George Washington University, he taught Art History in several higher education environments, from rural community colleges to private universities. Before coming to Kansas, his previous faculty appointment was at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he refocused the introductory Art History courses from Western art to World art. His recent scholarly work has dealt with the printmaker José Guadalupe Posada. He authored the book Posada's Broadsheets: Mexican Popular Imagery 1890-1910 (University of New Mexico Press). He also curated an exhibition, Bandits and Bullfighters: Heroes and Anti-Heroes in Prints by Posada, which opened in 1998 at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center before beginning a national tour. His essays and reviews have appeared in The New Art Examiner, Goya: Revista de Arte, Third Text, and the alternative publications Drunken Boat and Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed. His involvement with Artforms began when he first taught from it in 1991.
