Join us to celebrate the rustic romance of the Crested Butte landscape in Jim Wodark’s solo exhibition, High Country Impressions. The exhibit runs from July 25th through August 28th, 2013. Wodark created these new paintings en plein air during his recent visit to Crested Butte in early July. Owner and director, Shaun Horne says, “Jim is an excellent and emerging California painter. Jim is making paintings as beautiful as anybody in the country right now”.

His paintings have received numerous awards including the Vanishing Landscape Prize Award at Plein Air Easton 2013, the Dr. Bosecker Prize Award at the Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational 2012, and 2nd Place at the 2013 Telluride Plein Air. His work was also included in the 2013 Oil Painters of America National Show. He was featured in Plein Air Magazine in 2012 and in Southwest Art Magazine in 2010.
