Trailside Galleries is pleased to announce Dustin Van Wechel: Quiet Observations, a show of all new works by the multiple award-winning wildlife painter. This young star has made a rapid ascent in the field of wildlife art and has become a collector favorite in just a matter of a few years.
Influenced by such iconic wildlife artists as Carl Rungius, Bob Kuhn, Tucker Smith and Ken Carlson, Van Wechel’s newest works will be a tour of western wildlife and their stories spoken through the language of the changing seasons.
Van Wechel notes,“Whenever I'm in the field, some of the moments I find most inspiring are when I just quietly observe my subject. No photographing, or sketching — just taking in all of the sights, sounds and smells. These mental notes are as important to informing my work as my sketches and reference photography. Quietly immersing myself in the serenity of the environment often leads to unforgettable experiences with nature that I can then bring into the studio and reimagine through my work.”
The show will be on exhibit from August 26 - September 7. Due to high collector demand, all works will be sold via a fixed price draw on September 7th.
