Trailside Galleries turns toward summer like an artist to its muse. Three related shows take place at Trailside this June: Salute to Summer, June 1-31; and landscape artists Robert Moore and Lanny Grant will showcase, in conjunction, at the gallery June 1-30.
The annual Salute to Summer provides a chance to see the latest works by that gallery’s premiere artists. The broad sampling includes works by Gerald Balciar, Bruce Cheever, Nicholas Coleman, Brent Cotton, John DeMott, Andrew Denman, Robert Duncan, Allen & Patty Eckman, Michael Godfrey, Veryl Goodnight, Z.S. Liang, Mike Malm, Bonnie Marris, Buck McCain, Greg McHuron, Dan Mieduch, Jim Morgan, Bill Nebeker, Gary Niblett, Ralph Oberg, Andy Peters, Jared Sanders, Bill Sawczuk, Lindsay Scott, Kyle Sims, Mian Situ, Adam Smith, Daniel Smith, Tucker Smith, Richard Thomas, Kent Ullberg, Kathy Wipfler and more.
Every time I’ve taken a Jackson Hole Art Tours client to Trailside, Moore’s singularly romantic, rich canvases command attention. Moore’s thick use of paint, his ability to move from warm to cool palettes and back again, his composition and lively landscapes fit a variety of tastes. Canvases are often large, but there’s a price point for everyone. Born and raised in the Snake River Valley of Idaho, Moore is a 20-year Trailside veteran, widely collected.
Landscape painter Lanny Grant, noted for his mountain vistas, also paints more intimate scenes, such as a sun-drenched hillside blanketed in flowering sage. A native of the Colorado Rocky Mountain region, Grant’s passion for these western ranges never wanes.
Up to 10 new works by Grant will be on display. The artist was recently asked to be Artist-In-Residence at Rocky Mountain National Park for the 2009 summer season.
