For Utah landscape painter G. Russell Case, the annual Artistic Horizons show is a welcome addition to his calendar. “The event is first class, and the artist lineup is tops. It’s a complete honor to be invited, and anything Darell Tunnicliff is involved in is always worth the price of admission,” Case says. It doesn’t hurt that Bozeman is surrounded by great natural beauty and near his favorite fly-fishing spot, Case jokes.
Tunnicliff is known to many artists and collectors as the exclusive representative for renowned landscape painter Clyde Aspevig. But Tunnicliff is also board president of Arts Without Boundaries, a nonprofit organization that brings performing and visual arts instruction and concerts to Montana schools. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of works at the show benefits the organization.
The three-day event features three works each by 14 artists from across the country, including Josh Elliott, Logan Hagege, Jeremy Lipking, Kyle Sims, and Jill Soukup. “The selection of each artist is based on artistic talent and the desire to create important artwork,” Tunnicliff says. “While there is great diversity with respect to subject matter and style, there is one constant—quality.”
Indeed, the show presents a range of works, from Native American figures by Hagege to wildlife scenes by Sims. Case, who is known for western landscapes that are sometimes compared to the works of Maynard Dixon, is bringing WHITE PINE PEAKS to the show. The painting was inspired by a winter drive through Montana last year just after a snowstorm had ended and the sky had begun to clear, creating deep, clean shadows. “The emotional aspect I was feeling related to the massive grandeur of the high country along with its hard, cold, and perhaps lonely life, depicting the Americana heartland or the good life—everything standing as American icons moving fast towards antiquity only to be replaced with nostalgia, romance, and a summer range for the rich.”
Artistic Horizons opens with an artists’ reception on Thursday, June 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person and include wine and appetizers. —Bonnie Gangelhoff
