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.
