April 13th, 2012
Omaha, NE – Don Wellerâ€™s Utah Ranch Hands art exhibit is now on display at David City, Nebraskaâ€™s Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art.
TheDon Weller: Utah Ranch Hands exhibit is a collection of paintings depicting ranch hands, cowboys and rodeos. Amanda Gunther is the curator of the exhibit. She says the collection of 20-plus art pieces includes imagery of strong men and women caring for the land. Gunther said Weller uses water colors and paints with detail.
â€œHe uses (water colors) to his advantage in areas that he wants to recede into the distance. Heâ€™ll do a wash of color or kind of like a splatter with a brush,” Gunther said.
“That gives the viewer the sense of space there without having to define and articulate each of that sense of space and detail,â€ She said.
Don Wellerâ€™s Utah Ranch Hands Collection is now on display through May 13th at the Bone Creek Museum in David City, NE.
