Zarzyski, the recipient of the 2005 Governorís Arts Award for Literature, has been spurring the words wild across the open range of the page and calling it poetry for thirty three years. Theodore Waddell has long been recognized as one of Montanaís most important contemporary artists - one who has played a significant role in the development of late modernism in Montana and the West. Born in Montana in l941,
Waddell grew up in Laurel, Montana, studied at the Brooklyn Museum Art School, Montana State University and received his MFA from Wayne State University in 1986. He later taught in the art department at the University of Montana in Missoula.


Sacramento Horses, monotype, by Ted Waddell

Ted ranched for many years in Ryegate, Montana, and now divides his time between central Montana and northern Idaho. Coming from three generations of Montana ranchers, Waddell translates his passion for wilderness and love for animals through impressionistic use of paint, color, light, texture and form on canvas and paper.
