Artists: Willem Volkersz
As a teen, Dutch born Volkersz traveled the mid 20th century American West with camera in hand. He documented the unfamiliar yet vibrant landscape and culture of the time; billboards, architecture, and decorated yards.

Among the works being shown, is Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor…, a characteristic mixed medium sculpture incorporating the elements for which Volkersz is known.

Artists: Tracy Stuckey
In the decade preceding his death, Frederic Remington produced a series of paintings that took as their subject the color of night. Inspired by this work Tracy Stuckey has produced new work with the added element of nighttime scenes. Much as Remington did, Stuckey shows us a west that is more a concept than reality. In his signature style Stuckey's characters play out gun battles on horseback but with water guns instead of Colts and riding playground ponies, get into desperate situations with drive-in villains, and scout distant towns for trouble while draped in designer wear. Come experience the West as only Tracy Stuckey can showcase it.
