Open House: March 19, 5-7pm
Jackson, WY…Trailside Galleries is pleased to present its annual “Wildlife Discovery”, exhibition and sale featuring all new works from an outstanding group of nationally known artists who are inspired to paint all things wild! Jackson is the perfect setting for this show as the area is a virtual Mecca for wildlife enthusiasts including photographers, nature buffs and of course, wildlife artists! Many of the country’s most noted wildlife painters will participate in the event, bringing an eclectic mixture of wildlife and natural subjects from around the world including big game animals from the African savannah, North American mammals, as well as delicate birds and aquatic subjects. While the artists each bring their own unique interpretation of animals to their canvas, they all share a deep commitment to the preservation of wildlife and our natural world.
Participating artists include Bonnie Marris, Jan Martin McGuire, James Morgan, Ralph Oberg, Lindsay Scott, Renso Tamse, Adam Smith, Lori Forest, Sarah Woods and Dustin Van Wechel among others.
Wildlife art continues to be one of the most collected genres of art in the country. Given the heightened awareness of global warming and fragile ecosystems, the genre seems to have taken on a whole new dimension, as the artists strive not only to create an esthetically pleasing image, but to have it serve as an educational tool to bring more awareness to preservation.
Since 1963, Trailside Galleries of Jackson, Wyoming and Scottsdale, Arizona has been regarded as one of the pre-eminent dealers in American representational art, specializing in a rich and varied collection of works by the leading western, wildlife, figurative, impressionist, and landscape artists in the country. The artist roster includes members of the Cowboy Artists of America, National Academy of Design, Oil Painters of America, Plein-Air Painters of America, Prix De West, Society of Animal Artists, National Sculpture Society and Masters of the American West.
The gallery is also home to the offices and showrooms of its auction department, the Jackson Hole Art Auction. Since 2007, the Jackson Hole Art Auction has been recognized as one of the premier art events in the country, defined by the high standard of works offered in a variety of genres including wildlife, sporting, figurative, landscape and Western art by both renowned past masters and contemporary artists.
