Only 1 More Month to See George McLean: The Living Landscape

Open through April 29, 2012
The meticulous work of George McLean captures singular moments in the lives of animals. Centered on careful observation of a plot of land he calls home, McLean's vibrant, complex paintings reflect one man's powerful vision of wildlife and its environment. His works reveal the forces of nature, small and mighty, that shape the existence of the creatures with whom we share this planet. This exhibition is located in the Gilcrease and Changing Visions Galleries. Generously sponsored by Spring Creek Ranch, Barbara Carlsberg, Carol & Bill Chittenden, Karen & Tim Hixon, Carole & Bob Hummel, Tally & Bill Mingst, and In Memory of Jim Petersen.
