In the News: A View to the West featured in Fine Art Connoisseur
March 12, 2015

Westward Ho, With Today's Best

Jeffrey Carlson Reporting
Editor, Fine Art Today

Moving equine portraits and dusty desert landscapes show off the talents of Jenness Cortez, Logan Maxwell Hagege, Bruce Lawes, and more.


For two weeks beginning March 16, Trailside Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona, will be exhibiting a selection of Western landscapes from some of its most recognized artists. The gallery is hosting a special open house for "A View to the West" that will coincide with Scottsdale's Thursday Art Walk on March 26, from 6-8 p.m.
 

The artists exhibiting in "A View to the West" include Bill Anton, Steve Atkinson, Elizabeth Brandon, Jeremy Browne, Ross Buckland, Jenness Cortez, John DeMott, Kathleen Dunphy, Logan Maxwell Hagege, Bruce Lawes, Jan Martin McGuire, S.C. Mummert, Alfredo Rodriguez, Marlin Rotach, William Suys, William Whitaker, and Dinah Worman.
 

The artworks on view are not just a grouping thoughtlessly thrown together for their shared interest in cacti and mountain ranges. Rather, this particular selection emphasizes profound connections that develop between the people, land, and animals of the American West. In Bruce Lawes' "Paint Over Time," age has worn the old cowboy significantly, while the deep connection he experiences with his mount remains steadfast. The enduring, redemptive nature of their relationship finds parallels in other works throughout the exhibition, where the Western lifestyle is treated with sincerity and honor.
