Booth Artists’ Guild Presents:  1-Day Landscape Painting Workshop with Artist G. Russell Case
Western painter G. Russell Case is inspired by nature, but he places little value on literal translations.  His sweeping, idealized versions of the western landscape are compositions that combine the beauty of the natural world with the rich imagination and originality of an artist’s mind.  Mr. Case has won numerous awards for his works including the Golden Thunderbird Best of Show at the Maynard Dixon Country 2004 and 2003 Invitational.  Join him for a morning lecture and demo and an afternoon of painting.

Booth Artists’ Guild Presents:  1-Day Wildlife Painting Workshop with Artist Dustin Van Wechel
Dustin Van Wechel will not paint an animal unless he has observed it firsthand.  One gets the feeling that he was actually on the banks of a stream as a brown bear strolled by or hidden among the rocks unnoticed by the big horn sheep.  His deep-rooted love of nature and his dedication to his craft create a unique style that brings his paintings to life.  Mr. Van Wechel’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States in one-man shows, major art exhibitions, and museums.

Booth Artists’ Guild Presents:  1-Day Horse Painting Workshop with Artist Bill Anton
The focus of Bill Anton’s work has always been on mood and passion.  He wants the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a western night.  He wants the volume of a cloud to be evident in his brushstrokes.  He loves the American West where walking thunderstorms and sunstruck cedars charge the landscape with beauty.  Mr. Anton’s work is in private and corporate collections across the country, including Sears, Dupont, State Farm Insurance, Bank of America, and Hewlett Packard.  Join him in this workshop where students will paint from a live horse.

Booth Artists’ Guild Presents:  1-Day Drawing Workshop with Artist Robert “Shoofly” Shufelt
Shoofly’s drawings are the result of 45 years in the saddle, working diligently as a cowboy enabling his soul to absorb “The Cowboy Way.”  With consummate technique, both dramatic and subtle, the artist’s subjects live in an intensified world of light, shadow, and texture far beyond realism, yet so clearly defined, they make color seem a distraction.  Mr. Shufelt’s work hangs in prestigious collections and museums, and is featured on covers and articles for major western art and ranching publications, as well as national network television documentaries.
