The snow show D

The group exhibition will be on view concurrently at the gallery’s locations in Denver, Colorado; Jackson, Wyoming; and Bozeman, Montana.

The pastures are huge—the cattle recede to dots and the fences look like line drawings in the distance. One can understand this perspective in a palpable way. I have been on this road over a hundred times and I never tire of the vistas offered and I always learn more about this great land.” Stuckey began his painting A Man, a Woman, and a Horse last year when he was abandoning the traditional view of the southwestern landscape for the mountain west. “I wanted to explore a different region of the West, but use the same characters. This painting in particular started off with just the woman leading the horse over this frozen lakebed. I kept rearranging the elements while adding and subtracting other imagery,” Stuckey explains. “I decided to add the male character at the bottom and then the blanket in order
