Preview now live on our website (link in bio). Join us August 19th for Eric Bowman's debut Los Angeles Solo Exhibition, titled "End of the Trail." Bowman has created more than a dozen new works featuring Cowboys and Mexican Banditos set amongst stylized landscapes. Bowman's stylish works are a culmination of decades working outdoor, painting
The paintings in "End of the Trail" were inspired by Bowman's studio location at the end of the Oregon Trail. "We all have this connection to the Trail," says Bowman. The artist touches on this by including trail rides, lost burros, and solitary figures in the paintings for the exhibit. The oils are bathed in subtle colors that you'd find late in the day, heavily influenced by California Impressionists and the Taos Society of Artists.
Bowman feels these subjects are meaningful to the vanishing American way of life, "As more ranches are being bought up and paved over, the whole Western ideal is diminishing...and thats why it needs to be preserved." @ericbowmanart
