BIG HORN — The Brinton Museum will feature nationally-acclaimed American landscape painter Clyde Aspevig in a one-person exhibit, “Landscape & Beyond,” on display in the Forrest E. Mars, Jr. Building’s Jacomien Mars Reception Gallery from June 5 through July 31.
A reception to meet the artist is set for June 5, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for museum members.
Known by museums and world class collectors, Aspevig is highly regarded as an accomplished American painter who uses vibrant color to depict spectacular Western landscapes. Aspevig is the recipient of numerous awards going back to the 1980s, including more recently the 1997 Prix de West Invitational Award, National Cowboy Hall of Fame; the prestigious 2006 Autry National Center John J. Geraghty Award; and the 2013 Edgar Payne Award for Best Landscape at the 102nd California Art Gold Medal Show, USC Fisher Museum of Art in Los Angeles, California.
As an artist who grew up on a ranch in Montana, his paintings evoke a sense of passion about the land that tugs at an emotional sensibility in all of us. The exhibit includes 28 paintings representing new work as well as a selection of oils dating back to 2013.
