The great physical strength of Greg Dye’s wild bison is portrayed in his thick pallet knife paintings that are contemporized with vivid wild hues. Timothy chapman invents hi own wild species. Ron Russon’s portrayal of wildlife has a subtle hint of native spiritualty combined with bold contemporary colors and lines. These artists as well as work by several artists will be displayed.

Some artists strive for realism when portraying animals, others go for fun and the imaginary.
Sarah Webber is an artist who can achieve a visual sense of realism when painting her subjects, but her titles take the renderings beyond just the visual, to establish a short story caught in time. In her painting called “Leap of Faith, Sarah gives the viewer the sense of a optimism as the bunny hops into the unknown. “Two Times the Fun”, shows two burros, caught giving their attention to a subject off canvas, and captures their sense of anticipation of what is to come.
Trevor Mikula deals strictly in the imagined. His painting style is honed to an economy of brushwork and details. The colors are yummy, and the subjects huggable. Animal Kingdom features all styles and interpretations of our wonderful world of animals. Artists include Ron Russon, Jaime Ellsworth, Connie Townsend, Chaille Trevor, and many more.
