Western Art Collector - - STATE OF THE ART WYOMING -

Orig­i­nally from ru­ral cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia, Kathy Wipfler moved to Jack­son, Wy­oming, in 1980 to learn to paint in plein air. With help from men­tors in­clud­ing Con­rad Sch­wier­ing, John Cly­mer,

Greg Mchuron, Hol­lis Wil­li­ford and Milo “Skip” Whit­comb, her 36 years of paint­ing the land­scape in all weather con­di­tions has sea­soned her view of the nat­u­ral world and the pur­pose of ap­ply­ing brush to can­vas. Wipfler has spent count­less hours rid­ing with the “real deal” cow­boys of Wy­oming and pa­tiently ob­serv­ing the abun­dant wildlife of the area. Her work is in­cluded in many col­lec­tions, most no­tably the Whit­ney Gallery of Western Art at the Buf­falo Bill Cen­ter of the West in Cody, Wy­oming. Wipfler’s draw­ing ti­tled Bruin Trio was awarded the pres­ti­gious Bob Kuhn Award at the 2015 Western Vi­sions Show at the Na­tional Mu­seum of Wildlife Art. Wipfler is rep­re­sented at Trailside Gallery and Simp­son Gal­lagher Gallery in Wy­oming, as well as Betsy Swartz Fine Art in Mon­tana and Wild­horse Gallery in Colorado. The artist will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in Trailside Gallery’s

55th an­niver­sary show in Jack­son.
