“I tell people that I’m a Western artist in that the subject matter that I do has tied me to Western art. I’m painting a contemporary slice of the West. I’m living what I paint.” – Theodore Waddell


THEODORE WADDELL Theodore Waddell was born in 1941 in Billings, Montana. He studied with Isabelle Johnson, Montana’s first modernist painter, before earning a scholarship to study at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and receiving his MFA from Wayne State University. His sophisticated modernist paintings have attracted widespread recognition. A former cattle rancher, Waddell most often paints freely rendered range animals roaming the vast plains of Eastern Montana. His art draws a deliberate parallel between his subject and abstract art elements. His work is in permanent collections including the Denver Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Booth Museum, Buffalo Bill Center, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Most recently, Waddell was the recipient of the prestigious 2015 Montana Governor’s Arts Award. The show reception on July 18 will kick off with a book signing at 5:30pm. Tucker’s Seasonal Words of Wisdom is a children’s book written by Lynn Campion with illustrations by Waddell, available at Altamira Fine Art. Original illustrations from the book are included in the exhibition.

Presales are available. Call 307.739.4700.
