Mammals in Glacier: Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey & Waterfalls in Yellowstone: M.C. Poulsen
October 21, 2021 – February 27, 2022
Artist M.C. Poulsen has embarked on a multiyear journey to hike and ride horseback into the backcountry of Yellowstone National Park and capture the waterfalls that the general public never gets to experience. “Painting the Falls of Yellowstone” a PBS Documentary that aired on June 2017 highlights this journey that parallels the early artists Moran and Bierstadt who captured the mystique that draws the public to Yellowstone today. Poulsen doesn’t want these cosmic beauties to remain hidden in the backcountry; he wants to share them with the human race, so they, too, are flooded with the same emotions he experienced CLICK HERE to view a tour through the exhibit. As a companion to the above we are bringing in Nancy Cawdrey’s collection of approximately 25 silk paintings of all the major animals in Glacier National Park.

Graham Hobart: Out of Africa and Into the West
July 31, 2021 – January 23, 2022
Born in southern Africa, Graham Hobart takes on the American West through his extraordinary black and white infrared photography. In 2014 upon seeing Hobart’s photographs of African animals and landscapes, Booth Western Art Museum Executive Director Seth Hopkins commissioned a photograph from Hobart and dared him to “go out and capture the American West in his unique illustrative style as he had in Africa.” This exhibition is Hobart’s response to that call and features over a decade of his work in the American West and Africa.
