Art in the Jailhouse: Theodore Waddell

Opening Spring Artwalk, May 4, 5:00-7:30 PM

On exhibit May 4 – June 22.


Waddell stands as one of the West’s most celebrated contemporary artists. For over five decades, Theodore Waddell has pursued his passion for art. With careers as a professor of art and rancher, his current work reflects the influences of these two professions. His abstract impressionistic rendering of real subject matter reflect the American experience of living in the West and his love of the land, and his vision draws the viewer into that world.

His paintings and prints of “landscapes with animals” couple abstract expressionist technique with creatures—Black Angus cattle, horses, and bison—that populate the high plains and mountain valleys of today’s ranching West. This is a rare opportunity for fans of Waddell and western art to view his work in the intimate setting of the Myrna’s Jailhouse Gallery.
