Trailside Galleries is pleased to announce Dustin Van Wechel: Seasons of the West - a show of all new works by the multiple award-winning wildlife painter. This young star has made a rapid ascent in the field of wildlife art and has become a collector favorite in just a matter of a few years. All works will be sold by draw on September 15, 2018.
Influenced by such iconic wildlife artists as Carl Rungius, Bob Kuhn, Tucker Smith and Ken Carlson, Van Wechel’s newest works will be a tour of western wildlife and their stories spoken through the language of the changing seasons.
Van Wechel notes, "With this new body of work, I focused on achieving two goals; first, I created the paintings to be heavily narrative — each painting telling a unique story, filtered through my own personal lens, of the wildlife and landscapes of the Rocky Mountain west. And second, I wanted the paintings to be intimate, presenting the viewer with a portrayal of the subject matter and ideas in each painting that they could, in some capacity, connect with emotionally.
The show will be on exhibit from September 10-23 and a reception with the artist is scheduled for Saturday, September 15 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. Due to high collector demand, all works will be sold via a fixed price draw during the reception.
