Formaldehyde to Fine Art includes a wide variety of my paintings and drawings, from my pieces inspired by the Yellowstone Heritage and Research Center's vast collection, to studio work and plein air studies throughout Yellowstone National Park. There is also a wide variety of John's bronze sculpture and some clay models, too.
In addition to the art work, there are actual artifacts loaned from Yellowstone National Park's collection of natural history specimens - from grizzly skulls to a snake in a jar from 1932. These are the subjects that inspired some of the paintings and drawings in the Show. There is a lot to see!
The Show will be at the Livingston Center for Art and Culture at 119 S. Main Street in Livingston Montana (406-222-5222) through July 12, 2014.
