You’ll love the May issue of Southwest Art if:
- You love the refreshing, tranquil turn of contemporary western art.
- You love exploring emerging and award-winning pastel artists.
- You love catching up with young artists that were long ago named rising stars.
In the May 2014 issue of Southwest Art you’ll meet western painter Howard Post. Having grown up on a ranch in Arizona and riding rodeo, Post pursued his artistic endeavors with a traditional bronc-busting, bull-riding bent. But gentle redirection from a college professor changed the course of Post’s career. Discover Post’s intimate portraits of the western landscape and the animals and people who inhabit them in this month’s issue.
After growing up on the East Coast and traveling around the world, still-life artist Joan Potter took a first look at the American Southwest and lost her heart forever. Her artistic journey, however, did not evolve to take on the Southwest’s culture. Learn more about her passionate pursuit of fine art in the May issue.
Other features in this issue include a look at Pastel Journal’s annual Pastel 100 competition winners and portfolio catch-up with a dozen artists we named rising stars years ago.
Don’t miss the in-depth previews of the West’s best art-show offerings from Texas to Montana and all the way to California.
