February 1-28, 2009, Jackson Hole’s Trailside Galleries presents its annual Wildlife Discovery Show. As always, the gallery pulls out all the stops to feature works by an impressive list of artists. Included are Nicholas Coleman, Andrew Denman, Nancy Glazier, Veryl Goodnight, Matthew Hillier, Grant Macdonald, Bonnie Marris, Jim Morgan, Ralph Oberg, Dino Paravano, Sherry Sander, Lindsay Scott, John Seerey-Lester, Kyle Sims, Ryan Skidmore, Adam Smith, Daniel Smith, Linda St. Clair, Richard D. Thomas, Kathy Wipfler and Sarah Woods.
Presentation is everything. If you’ve yet to experience Trailside’s new space on West Broadway, walk that way. The gallery’s extensive artist portfolio provides something for everyone, and meandering through Trailside’s nooks and crannies is endlessly rewarding. The gallery feels like a post-and-beam rustic lodge, with its massive rock fireplaces, Western furnishings and high ceilings. Upstairs, it’s possible to preview works that will be up for sale at the 2009 Jackson Hole Art Auction, produced in conjunction with the Gerald Peters Gallery.
Nancy Glazier’s new works are a February feature; I did not find a direct link to a website for this artist, but Glazier is known for her paintings of North American wildlife in their natural habitat. She is a conservationist, as many wildlife artists are, recommitting her pledge to protect and study our earth’s wild inhabitants.
