Trailside Galleries is proud to showcase recent works by landscape painter Jay Moore. Having been raised in Colorado and spent most of his life outdoors, Moore has a beautiful, finely tuned picture ready for your mantel.
On view through April 7 at Trailside Galleries’ Scottsdale, Arizona, location is a luminous display of landscape beauty from Colorado artist Jay Moore. “Moore is a modern-day naturalist,” the gallery suggested, “more at home amongst the elements, observing the natural world. The artist’s years spent exploring the Colorado highlands has given him a keen eye for the subtleties of the great outdoors. He can look at a patch of snow on the ground and tell you what month it is. He can even tell, often to the minute, when rain will fall by looking at the cloud patterns in the sky.”
All of Moore’s attention to detail surfaces with brilliance in his landscapes, which are tightly rendered and could easily fool the eye. “As an artist,” Moore asserts, “a painting is like a conversation: I hear what the terrain says to me and respond on the canvas. I am very excited about the show because it will include paintings from my usual haunts in Colorado as well as explorations in the past year to Glacier National Park, the California coast, and Hawaii. I am broadening out and finding whole new subject matter that is very inspiring. I have been easel painting for over 20 years, but am as excited as ever.”
