Powell: Ace of Diamonds & Cowboy in the Rough
July 10 through October 13

Asa Lynn Powell spent most of his life in Montana. He was raised near Glacier National Park and worked for the Park as a wrangler early in his life. He observed Charlie Russell at work, and was inspired to make his own career -- painting and sculpting traditional images such as Cowboys, Indians, Western Landscapes, Horses, Lodges, Cabins, and Wildlife. He was extremely prolific, creating an estimated 12,000 to 15,000 paintings and sculptures in his lifetime.
