Trailside Galleries is pleased to announce Morgan Weistling; A Brush With History. The show is comprised of a select group of new works that complement the release of Weistling’s new book of the same title. The show is scheduled for Saturday, September 15 from 4:00-700 pm. Morgan Weistling will be available to meet with collectors and sign copies of his book.
A two-time winner of the Prix de West purchase award, Weistling is renowned for his lush narratives of early American frontier life. With his skilled draftsmanship and use of light, he has been weaving stories that have captivated collectors for more than 20 years. A master storyteller, each painting is a narrative that draws in and engages the viewer and each relays Weistling’s own personal feelings about life, family, history and shared human experiences.
Of his show and book, he notes, “A Brush with History “can be taken a couple of ways. I have been a professional artist for 35 years and so my "brush" has quite a history of experiences. But also, my brush paints a historical time period of the American frontier and it's inhabited by the world of characters that live on from painting to painting in a shared universe of my making.” He adds, “The latest paintings for this show are an extension of this universe. While putting together my new book, I was reminded of the many themes that have evolved in my work. This show was born from that introspection and it touches upon the importance of family, hard work, faith and community that helped shape the West. I never stray far from looking for the beauty of life and from being inspired by light but as always, I do so with a storyteller’s heart.”
Due to high collector demand and limited number of works, the painting will be sold by fixed price draw during the artist reception on Saturday, September 15.
