ALAMOSA — Joe Horvath’s “Wildlife Art” will be on display at the San Luis Valley Museum from August 3 through August 25. There will be a reception and presentation by the artist on Friday, August 10th, from 6-8 p.m. Admission is free. Everyone is welcome.
“My current work is wildlife portraits in oils,” Horvath said. “I most often paint the larger animals: deer, elk, big horn sheep and goats, focusing on their interaction with their natural habitats, and recently I have started to pay more attention to the personalities of smaller animals, too. In my art, I see animals emerge as individuals, my paintings as portraiture.”
Using many of his own photos in his demos, Horvath teaches adults oil painting and watercolor classes, customizing his approaches in response to student need. Spring of 2017 he taught a drawing class, in addition to his oil painting and watercolor classes, since his students wanted to develop their skills in that medium.
