It is an honor to announce this exhibition features artwork focused specifically on the nation's great western parks including a 11 x14" oil painting completed in the Badlands National Park as part of a grant project through the South Dakota Artists Grant program.. My thanks to my mentor Bonnie Casey and the South Dakota Arts Council.

Closing on Feb. 23, the Phippen Museum in Prescott is presenting its "National Parks of the West" exhibition featuring dozens of works gathered mostly from private and National Park Service collections.
Only four come from the Phippen's own collection.
Artists on exhibition include Thomas Moran at the entrance to the exhibit, along with works by Charles Dorman Robinson, Gunnar Widforss , Louis Akin Ray Swanson,  Bill Anton, Bonnie Casey and Robert Peters.
