“These new small works are a celebration of my corner of the big sky state. As I go about my day to day life here in western Montana I find I’m appreciating more the simple scenes that speak to my eye and heart. Trying to capture the beauty of my surroundings in the various seasons and moods is truly something I enjoy and feel compelled to do. I hope the viewers get a sense of my time and place, and ultimately feel drawn into the scene along with me.” - Brent Cotton
Trailside Galleries is pleased to announce Brent Cotton: My Neck Of The Woods, a showcase of all new small works by the Montana sporting artist. This Holiday Season, the very popular and charismatic artist will have a limited number of small works available during this event which presents an opportune time for collectors to acquire a signature Brent Cotton painting. The artist is highly recognized for his atmospheric landscapes and flyfishing scenes.
Over the years, Cotton’s style has evolved from tightly rendered to impressionistic and the work has moved toward the tonalist/luminist schools.
An avid outdoorsman, Brent can often be found standing in one of the local rivers with a fly rod in his hand or on the oars of his drift boat. The proximity to incredible trout streams is one of the many reasons he and his family make their home in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana.
