ALL WOMEN. ALL WYOMING! July 1-30-2022 Horizon Fine Art Gallery, Jackson, WY
Opening Reception Saturday, July 2 from 4-7pm
Artists painting in the gallery, Saturday and Sunday July 2 -3
The aged elk bone watercolorist Kay Stratman discovered on a wilderness hike near her home in the Wyoming Tetons became the catalyst for developing a new painting series she calls Out On A Limb. Floating in the foreground above the landscapes Stratman depicts, the bones of local wildlife find new meaning. “In these paintings I honor the importance of what is wild in our world, continue their memory, and respect their individual lives. By portraying their ethereal spirit and quintessential nature, I place value on their existence – past and future,” she says.
These recent paintings, along with her fluid landscapes will be included in an upcoming exhibit at Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole.
Horizon Fine Art is Jackson’s most eclectic gallery, featuring local, regional, and international art, displaying paintings, photography, sculpture, jewelry, glass, and woodwork. “When I first opened the gallery 24 years ago I expected to carry traditional Western and wildlife art, but as the gallery began to evolve, so indeed did the art,” owner Barbara Nowak says. “I began to build my collection by seeking out the unusual and unique.” Today, guided by Nowak’s intuition and willingness to try something new, the gallery represents recognized artists’ work from traditional Western to contemporary abstracts.
“All Women, All Wyoming”, on display from July 1 – July 30, will include Stratman’s paintings, in addition to Jill Hartley, Nicole Gaitan, and Chelse Wren. Each offers a unique style and technique of depicting western flora and fauna.
