Opening Night at the Nicolaysen

Yesterday was opening night for my show and artist talk for "The Magic of Africa" at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper.  The show will be in the Rosenthal Gallery through January 22, of 2017.  The paintings in this show were inspired by our 2009 visit to the Serengeti of Tanzania.  Many of the wildlife species depicted in this body of work are either threatened or endangered.  Climate change is but one of the factors threatening Africa's wildlife species.  These iconic wildlife populations are being decimated by poaching and habitat loss.  It is my hope that my art will make a connection with the viewer that fosters conservation values.
