Featured Atrist

Sam Terakidas / Moose Horn Gallery
Sam started his professional career as a sculptor in 1992, although painting and other art medias were always part of his life. Sam says, I do primarily realistic wildlife and western bronze sculpture. A large portion of my 56 years has been spent watching wildlife in its natural habitat. My desire is to share the memories and emotion of those pieces that I create. The Montana Governors Cultural Foundation selected Sam to exhibit his work at the state capitol Governors Mansion in January 2002. Sams work is represented in galleries across the western United States, Canada, and in Brussels, Belgium, as well as private collections around the world. Sam currently resides in Livingston, Montana.

Russell Chatham was born in San Francisco on October 27, 1939. He lived in the city until 1949 when his family moved to San Anselmo, where he spent the next twelve years. For the following eleven years, he worked and lived in Marshall, San Rafael, San Anselmo, Black Point, Bolinas, and Nicasio, earning his living as a sign painter and cabinetmaker slash carpenter. In the spring of 1972 he moved to Livingston, Montana. As a painter and author, Chatham is self-taught. He is the grandson of the great landscape painter Gottardo Piazzoni.

He began exhibiting formally in 1958, and since then has had something on the order of four hundred one man shows at museums, art centers, private galleries, schools, colleges and universities not only throughout the west in places like Sun Valley, Aspen, Santa Fe and Denver, but also in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Seattle, Dallas, San Francisco and Los Angeles. His work has also been exhibited in Europe and the Orient. Chatham began printmaking in 1981, and is today regarded as one of the world's foremost lithographers.

Chatham's writing includes hundreds of articles, short stories, essays and reviews about fly fishing, bird hunting and conservation as well as a number of pieces on food and wine. Since 1967 his work has appeared in Esquire, Sports Illustrated, The Atlantic, Men's Journal, Outside, Sports Afield, Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, Gray's Sporting Journal, Fly Fisherman, Fly Rod and Reel, as well as in dozens of newspapers and smaller specialty magazines. His books include; The Angler's Coast, Silent Seasons, and Dark Waters. One new book is in progress, and should be released in 2006. He is the founder and publisher of Clark City Press, which, since 1989, has published thirty-two books of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, art, photography, and children's classics, all of which have given the Lvingston based company a sound national reputation.

Original Paintings, Lithographs and Reproductions

Born January 19, 1954 in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge region of the Appalachian Mountains to Scotch-Irish parents, I was indoctrinated into the arts and was an active member of the art community. Some of my most vivid memories are of finger-painting at age 6 with my mother, Gwyn Finley Reece under the tutelage of Ruth Shaw, the originator of the finger-painting medium. I went on to attend East Carolina University, the Universidad National in Costa Rica, and attained my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute.

For almost 30 years I have roamed the mountains, rivers and taverns of Southwest Montana, often in pursuit of wild game and fish. My gallery is located in historic downtown Livingston where you can view my newest work.

The highly acclaimed book, Call of the Wild – The Art of Parks Reece, featuring the first published collection of the wit and works of Parks Reece is also available there.

“Magnetic works that hold our attention with their resplendent beauty and gentle satire spellbinding mystical.” - Chicago Tribune “

“The Royal Jester of modern Western art has to be Parks Reece of Livingston, Montana simply an unsentimental, exquisitely modern painter of the West.” - WBUR, Boston’s NPR News Station

“An untamed imagination…take a walk on the wild side with alchemical artist Parks Reece…trained as a fine artist, he gleefully dances on a razor’s edge between art and kitsch, tweaking our notions of reality with wit and beguiling us with mystery.” - Los Angeles Times

“Think Van Gogh meets ‘The Far Side,’ and you might begin to understand artist Parks Reece.” - Montana Living Magazine
