Howard Terpning is known for his art ot the Native American people. "It's the strength of character that I see in the faces from the past that compels me to retell their stories. I feel a kinship to the People, and I want to keep their history alive." Terpning is most proud of praise from Native Americans today. At a recent art exhibition a Cheyenne woman stopped him to say .... "I just want to touch you, because you are the only one who perceives our people as we perceive ourselves."

David Armstrong  "I have an overwhelming concern for the beauty the earth has lost and all that can still be preserved. Through my work I have tried to show the timeless, peaceful bounty and beauty of the earth and to express my concern for its fragility," David Armstrong painted the life he lived on a farm in Pennsylvania, in touch with the harmony of nature and man, a harmony depicted in his paintings.

James C. Christensen , known for his Fantasy Art studied painting at Brigham Young University and at the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. He recently retired after twenty-one years as professor of art at BYU. Christensen says "Life seems to be more complicated than ever. And, all too often, too serious. I use my artwork to ease the burdens of everyday stuff. My characters deal with the same problems we all face in what we call "life". Their unique point of view helps me put my own problems in perspective with a smile - and hopefully yours."

Jim Daly  paints Americana. His paintings are high gloss acrylic and oil renderings evocative of rural life, of simpler times. Whether the piece is sentimental or dramatic, the impression a Jim Daly painting leaves with the viewer is that of a warm "sepia-toned" yesterday-like an old-time photo. In fact there is much color-from blues to greens, reds and yellows-but the color is mellowed, like the time period itself.

Peter Ellenshaw   The powerful panoramic landscapes of Peter Ellenshaw express both the magnitude and the delicacy of nature. He calls his method of painting "impressionistic shorthand," which refers to his use of broad brush strokes to give the impression of detail. There is a jewel-like quality to his colors that fires the light in his paintings

William Phillips  Aviation art was William Phillips first artistic love, "but my true, enduring love remains my Christian faith, family, and home. So it is my pleasure to combine all of it in my work. The historical aviation subjects, I research; the contemporary and nostalgic subjects, I live." After one of his paintings was presented to King Hussein of Jordan, Phillips was commissioned by the Royal Jordanian Air Force. He developed sixteen major paintings, many of which now hang in the Royal Jordanian Air Force Museum in Amman. The Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum presented a one-man show of William Phillips' work in 1986; he is one of only a few artists to have been so honored.

John Weiss   "I enjoy painting simple scenes which convey the deep and loyal bond between dogs and people, because I can relate to them myself. They are familiar moments - part of an everyday life we can understand and enjoy."

Charles Wysocki   Rejoicing in the hard work and quiet pleasures of nineteenth-century life, Charles Wysocki filled his canvases with quaint bridges, plowed fields, cats, horses and sleighs. Whether he was depicting a cozy New England bay or a busy Amish valley, the artist mixed whimsy and warmth; his brush sets flags awave and spirits soaring, and his paintings - from Foxy Fox Outfoxes the Fox Hunters to Frederick the Literate - shine with gladness and innocence.

Andrew Wyeth  is perhaps the most well-known American artist. Wyeth works in the mediums of watercolor and egg tempera and many of his watercolors are painted using the technique known as dry brush. His palette is characteristically a very subtle range of earth tones. Andrew Wyeth paints everyday people and places that are found near his home in Chester County, PA and in Maine.
