“Textures of the West”. A member of the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America, Jason Rich begins each painting with the illuminated gesture and movement of the horse. With decisive, yet fluid brushstrokes, Rich captures the form and motion of the animals he grew up riding, training and drawing on a small southern Idaho farm. He blends authentic experience and imagination to vibrantly depict the cowboy way of life. Opening artist reception on April 7 from 6 to 8 pm during First Friday Art Walk Fredericksburg.
