February 3 thru April 8, 2006

Little RascelThe winter gallery exhibit debuts February 3, 2006 and features the work of award-winning wildlife and landscape artist George Lockwood. Inspired by first-hand knowledge of wildlife, George’s images record his personal experiences and his passion for the outdoors.

As a boy, George explored the outdoors, camping, hunting and fishing in the western US and Mexico. As a student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, he spent the summer months packing mules in Yosemite National Park. Those experiences eventually led him to Alaska where he obtained his guide license and led clients to some of that state’s most remote and beautiful corners.

Art was at first a hobby, but soon clients were commissioning paintings of the locations and animals viewed during their trips with George and his winter months were devoted to painting. In 1989 he moved to Prescott, Arizona to broaden his range of subject matter and devote more attention to art, continuing to guide in Alaska during summer months.

LockwoodThe State of Alaska commissioned George to paint two of their duck stamps and both were voted best duck stamp design in the nation for their respective years. He won the titles of California Ducks Unlimited Artist of the Year 1998-99, Ducks Unlimited International Artist 1999-2000, Vermont State duck stamp 1998, Birds in Art International Exhibition 1998. Other awards include Foundation for Northern American Wild Sheep Artist of the Year, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Featured Artist, and award winning artist at the Pacific Rim Wildlife Art Show. He will be a featured artist in a book currently in production, "The Best of Wildlife Art II."

George and his family currently live in the Santa Ynez Valley.
