The Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery is again pleased to offer for the 12th year, new paintings by well known western artist Thom Ross.
Ross is best known for his accurate and extremely whimsical portrayal of events taken from the Wild West era. His paintings are bright, bold and refreshing in their style, yet accurate in their history. Little known events or happenings are transformed into whimsical stories told by Ross in playful paint.
This year's exhibit reflects stories of Cowboy and Indians and their place in history. There will be varied images from many of the stories we know and some we don't.
Ross is a master at research and thrives on finding little known events and adventures of the Wild West to revisit as paintings. He is frequently asked to speak at colleges on history of the Wild West and act in a variety of made for T.V. movies dealing with the west. Most recently, Ross has been noted by True West Magazine as the best living contemporary western painter in the country.
