Based from his home and studio in Jackson, Wyoming, plein-air painter
Greg McHuron works in both oil and watercolor, primarily painting wildlife
and landscapes throughout the United States and Canada. Like his teacher
and mentor, the late Conrad Schwiering, Greg paints on location, his
on the spot field sketches capturing the drama and excitement of these
rapidly changing scenes as they unfold.
McHuron notes,“If I can capture that particular feeling, I know
that those viewing my work will come to feel some of the emotions and
excitement that motivated my wanting to record this particular fleeting
moment. I’m a firm believer that an artist should live in an area
which has the subjects they want to paint-to surround themselves with
their subject, thus to better understand it and to paint it with knowledge.”
A member of the Society of Animal Artists since 1979, his many awards
include the 1999 Wyoming Artist Association-Artist of the Year. His paintings
are found in major private, corporate and museum collections across the
country including the National Wildlife Art Museum, Jackson, Wyoming;
Bennington Center for The Arts, Bennington, Vermont; Grand Teton National
Park, Wyoming; Leighton Foundation, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
In January of 2002 he was the Artist In Residence at the National Wildlife
Art Museum. Greg McHuron has been profiled in "Wildlife Art News", "Southwest
Art", and "Art of the West".
