A New Ted Waddell at Altamira Fine Art
Continuum: a range or series of things that are slightly different from each other and that exist between two different possibilities.
Montana painter Theodore Waddell paints expansive canvases that reflect his own unique and impressionistic West. For years he’s been represented by Altamira Fine Art, arguably the gallery most contemporary Western artists would like to call “home.” I happily anticipate being greeted by a new, giant Waddell work at Altamira. In the past, a new Waddell painting was relatively easy to envision.
This latest collection is a surprise! A lovely surprise. “Theodore Waddell: The Painterly Continuum,” is on exhibition July 13 – 25, with an opening reception and book signing (meet the artist!) on July 18th, 5:30-7:30 pm.
“The Painterly Continuum” is filled with fresh exploratory works. New color. New patterns and compositions. Waddell fans will fall in love all over again.
Here’s a dynamite preview link to the show’s catalog. Waddell paints what has tied him to the West: the ranching Western surroundings he calls home.
“I’m living what I paint,” he says.
Waddell’s work is part of the permanent collections at the Denver Museum of Art, Los Angeles Museum of Art, Booth Museum, Buffalo Bill Center in Cody, Wyoming and Jackson’s National Museum of Wildlife Art. Waddell has become “more contemporary.” He’s a jolly, smiling soul! No moody artist sulking in the corner is he. He writes and illustrates children’s books; perfect gifts to take home to your youngest loved ones. www.altamiraart.com
