Dustin Van Wechel: Quiet Observations
Through September 7, 2019
Trailside Galleries, Jackson, Wyoming
From the gallery:
Trailside Galleries is pleased to announce “Dustin Van Wechel: Quiet Observations,” 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 a matter of just a few years.
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,“Whenever I’m in the field, some of the moments I find most inspiring are when I just quietly observe my subject. No photographing, or sketching — just taking in all of the sights, sounds, and smells. These mental notes are as important to informing my work as my sketches and reference photography. Quietly immersing myself in the serenity of the environment often leads to unforgettable experiences with nature that I can then bring into the studio and reimagine through my work.”
The show will be on exhibit through September 7. Due to high collector demand, all works will be sold via a fixed price draw. For more information, please visit TrailsideGalleries.com.
