About the “LIVESTOCK AT HOME & ON THE RANGE” Exhibit:   

Livestock has shaped every aspect of life in the American West. The management, care and feeding of livestock influenced land ownership, law, water rights, town locations, railroad destinations, architecture and jobs. In caring for these magnificent animals, families have dedicated generations to their husbandry. Livestock are embedded in the lives of many communities.

The artists of the American West have always found livestock, their caretakers and ranches to be a source of inspiration. This exhibition includes over 20 artists who have captured livestock buildings and these essential animals in action and repose.

“LIVESTOCK AT HOME & ON THE RANGE” was jointly curated by FWA’s Wendy Davis, Beth Fulfer, Helen Sanders and Barbara Peck. Amerind curators Eric Kaldahl and Maria Martinez rounded out the curatorial team.

Nine FWA families loaned artwork for the show, including Betsy Greene, Diane Maroscia, Amy and Marc Merkel, Bret Paulk, Barbara and Hank Peck, Cindy and Tad Piper, SaraBeth Roberson, Helen Sanders, and Addie and Bob Valentine. Amerind Museum added pieces from its permanent collection to the show.

The exhibit features work by Suzanne Baker, Santos Barbosa, Arthur Begay, Harrison Begay, Deborah Coopenhaver Fellows, Don Crowley, VaLoy Eaton, Michael Ewing, John Fawcett, Daro Flood, Jon Gerik, Linda Loeschen, George Magnan, Erika Marquez, William Matthews, Chuck Mauldin, Joe Orr, Francisco Rodriguez-Maruca, James Reynolds, Owen Rose, Bob Scriver, Robert “Shoofly” Shufelt, Phil Starke, Andrew Van Tsinajinnie, Bernard Vetter and Melvin Warren.

This exhibit closes on Memorial Day weekend. Don’t miss a chance to see it!
