Tucker Smith: A Celebration of Nature

Tucker Smith: A Celebration of Nature

September 11, 2021 – January 2, 2022

Tucker Smith is nationally renowned for his balanced, subtle paintings inspired by the wildlife and mountain atmosphere that have been such an integral part of his life. His home and studio on the Hoback Rim in Western Wyoming offer direct access to his favorite subjects: vast landscapes, sprawling cattle ranches, and the backcountry with its abundant wildlife and natural, unspoiled beauty. Well-known for his painstaking approach to art, he conducts research, paints on location and labors at his easel until he feels the work is exactly right. 

Tucker has exhibited at most of the major art shows in the United States and won many awards including the prestigious Prix de West Purchase Award in 1990 for his painting Return of Summer (pictured above). Plan a visit to the Booth Museum and enjoy this stunning retrospective of one of today’s leading wildlife artists, Tucker Smith.
