“Wild” and “West” have been associated in the United States for decades, if not centuries. Whether visiting national parks, rescue centers, ranches, or the open plains, our artists are enamored by the animals of the West, both Wild & Rescued. Mike Weber captures creatures on camera, and uses an involved process of mixed media to bring these animals indoors, in a way that makes them more accessible and relatable. Sandra Kaplan explores the Wilderness through her lens, capturing wild horses of the West, to the rare white bears of the Northwest. Paula Schuette Kraemer depicts animals she encounters in the woods of Colorado, literally leaving her mark through fingerprints on her large-scale drypoint mono print, monotype prints. Ewoud de Groot paints birds and mammals that he encounters in the wild of the West and his seaside home in the Netherlands. Veryl Goodnight paints sweet scenes of familiar faces, like foxes and raccoons, in their natural element. We hope you enjoy this selection of Wild & Rescued animals depicted by our artists.
