Throughout his four-decade career as a plein-air painter, Gregory I. McHuron (1945-2012) worked outdoors on almost a daily basis. His presence in the field was legendary in Jackson, Wyoming, where he lived, and in Grand Teton National Park, where he found many of his subjects. McHuron saw each day as an adventure, and the more remote the painting location the better. A committed wildlife artist, he considered himself to be "nature's interpreter and guard" and used his art and his voice to speak out on behalf of wild places and wild creatures. The true artist, he said, must "live his art and paint from the heart." This retrospective of McHuron's life in art is a story of living in the now, as well as a guide to finding what McHuron called the "WOW" that serenades your soul. It is a journey of discovery, as meaningful as it is colorful.
