Join the editors of Southwest Art this month as we celebrate 10 people who make outstanding contributions to the western art world—gallery owners, artists, and museum directors. We celebrate those who foster an appreciation for the American West, whether they paint the majestic terrain of the Grand Tetons or display these paintings in their museums and galleries. We salute those who bring a multicultural perspective to their art as well as others who bring art from other cultures to the shores of America. And, finally, we pay tribute to the talented artists who share their expertise in the classroom to help nourish the next generation. Peruse the following pages and appreciate with us this dedicated cadre of prominent and passionate art lovers.
