Art Matters: American West
January 10 @ 11:00 am
Jane Blair of Art Matters will present on the American West at 11:00 am on Zoom. American artists have been like America itself, pioneering, bold, and independent. Especially in the western frontiers where artists were confronted with a totally new and unbelievably beautiful landscape, an alien culture, and a dramatically different life style. It fascinated everyone, especially the jaded and complacent Europeans who were enthralled and seduced by the Western American experience. But, it was all over in just 90 years. It took only one life span to end this chapter of our history; from the virgin exploration through pristine lands, to the massacre of millions of bison; the pioneers, trappers, cowboys, settlers, miners, and the total redistribution of native Americans in the Indian Wars. Please join Art Matters for a look at a very brief but special time in our nation’s history through the eyes of artists who tried to capture the flavor of a lost era and preserve it for us.
