Booth Western Art Museum is excited to welcome artist Theodore “Ted” Waddell (b. 1948). The exhibit, My West: The Art of Theodore Waddell, can be viewed in the Museum’s Temporary Exhibition Gallery from July 18 through December 29, 2013.
For decades Ted Waddell has created unique and impressionistic scenes depicting the land near his homes in Montana and Idaho, creating art work based on abstractions of subject matter at hand, especially grazing animals and their habitats. The exhibition features nearly 50 paintings, hand-made prints and sculpture based on Waddell’s personal experience on rural ranches and in urban art centers. The edgy, yet serene and animated qualities of his work have drawn rave reviews from a wide range of art fans at Modern and Western art museums nationwide.
Waddell has also been named Featured Artist for Booth Western Art Museum’s 11th Annual Southeastern Cowboy Festival & Symposium, October 24-27, 2013. Play a round of golf with Ted at the Featured Artist Golf Tournament on Thursday, October 26, 9:00 am at Woodland Hills Golf Club. Attend the Gallery Walk, Reception, and Evening Lecture with Waddell at Booth Western Art Museum on Thursday, October 26 beginning at 4:00 pm. For more information on these events, call 770-387-1300 or visit the Cowboy Festival event page.
