Matt Atkinson is a Colorado-based painter whose work is found in collections throughout North America and Europe. He has a degree in Studio Art from the University of Tennessee, and is a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Plains Artists, and Western Associates Artists. His traditional realist paintings portray the American west from days gone by to present, and in particular the stories of men and women who preserve its heritage.
Don Orr is a metal sculptor. His primary media is mild steel which may be textured, highly polished, accented with brass, copper or covered in a warm patina. Unlike cast sculptures where the details are created in clay and then captured in a mold and then cast, his works are created by welding metal together and creating details by moving a puddle of molten metal to achieve the desired effect.
