Glorious Vista: American Art of the West from the MMAC Permanent Collection
January 7 - February 20, 2016
Paxson and Meloy Galleries
From the Pueblos of New Mexico to Glacier National Park, this exhibition explores the landscapes and people of the Rocky Mountain West during the 19th and 20th centuries. Canvases by Edgar Paxson, Joseph Henry Sharp and others in the Meloy Gallery combine to show the backdrop that enticed many west. Paintings and sculptures of cowboys and Native Americans by Charles M. Russell, Ace Powell, Julius Seyler, Nancy McLaughlin, and George Catlin round out this show in the Paxson Gallery.
