Jill Hartley's "Wyoming Landscapes" featured in solo show at Nicolaysen Art Museum

"Canyon Sunrise in Southwest Wyoming" by Jill Hartley

Jill Hartley’s “Wyoming Landscapes” will be featured in the Nicolaysen Art Museum's Rosenthal Gallery in Casper through Sept. 9.

Jill Hartley lives and paints in the high desert country of Southwest Wyoming. Her rich landscape paintings in oil reflect the bright light of the West. Jill was born in Colorado Springs, CO. She attended college in Colorado, and moved with her husband to Wyoming in 1976, living in Hanna, Glenrock, and Rock Springs. In 1986, they purchased a small ranch on the Wyoming-Colorado border, and Jill’s studio, built by her husband and son was completed there in March 2008. Jill’s work has been widely exhibited and awarded regionally. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Plains Artists, and the American Impressionist Society. 

”The landscapes of Wyoming are a painter’s dream. The paintings in this exhibit are my response to the intense light, big distances, muted colors, and dramatic skies that are Wyoming. It is a good day when I feel I have successfully caught even a little of that grandeur on canvas. I want my work to take you to a place you’ve been or would like be.”

Her work is represented by Horizon Fine Art in Jackson, WY; Deselms Fine Art in Cheyenne, WY; Navarro Gallery in Sedona, AZ; and West of Center Gallery in Rock Springs, WY; and on her website
