About John Potter

John Potter was raised in Great Lakes country,on and off the Lac du Flambeau Ojibwe Indian Reservation in northern Wisconsin, where he grew up with an abiding love for the Natural World in the forests of the Great Northwoods.

In 2008, he was honored by the National Museum of Wildlife Art as the recipient of the first Robert Kuhn Award for best submission in artist's sketches. Potter's work hangs in private collections across the country and around the world. He maintains his home and studio in Red Lodge, Montana.

Artist Statement

"Bears hold a special place in my heart and Spirit. They have occupied my thoughts, my dreams, my experiences, my being. To me, they have a voice and a song that speaks of Creator's love for the land and the Wild. We must all learn to listen."

What People Are Saying

This museum was not only beautiful but expansive in its art collections. We visited with our 9 yr.-old granddaughter and she thoroughly enjoyed it as much as we did.
