2nd Annual COntemporary Western Show
San Antonio, Texas (October 15, 2019) – Felder Gallery invites you to come see Where The West Is Fun at our 2nd Annual Contemporary Western Show. This time, we are showcasing works by Miles Glynn from his Wallflower and pulpWESTERN series. The show will run from November 22, 2019 – January 4, 2020 with an opening reception, featuring a personal appearance by the Montana-based artist, on Friday November 22, from 5-7pm.
The artist captures the quintessence of what was and what is today’s West in a compelling fusion of realism, fantasy and technology. His work is intricate, meticulous, graceful, and often downright startling. As unexpected, say, as an image of a fragile scrap of wallpaper from an historic ghost town adorning the rough, shaggy pelt of a buffalo. Nope, it shouldn’t work, but yep, it does.
Glynn's affinity for traveling long roads, exploration, and going to great lengths to create compelling photographs leads to his success in telling important stories. "I travel to abandoned homesteads, gritty ghost towns, and buildings dripping with history to photograph exquisite wallpapers - these glorious relics of an effort made by people who wished to enjoy a simple bit of beauty inside their dwelling on the harsh and hostile American frontier. But time has had its way with these buildings, and in my own way, I take comfort in helping the grace and grandeur of these relics to live on."
The opening reception will take place at Felder Gallery, 5934 Broadway St, Suite 1. Guests will enjoy hors d'oeuvres while sipping on Prairie Palomas - a specialty drink using moonshine spirits that are usually available only in Montana. Guests will also have the chance to chat with the artist about his works—and hear some of the colorful stories behind their creation.

About Miles Glynn
I am a visual artist based in Bozeman, Montana. I grew up the son of a U.S. Army photojournalist and this experience taught me how to see life in frames and compositions. Beyond merely documenting my subject matter, I aim to present my interpretation of it. Herein lies the art - the depiction of something striking yet soothing, familiar yet curious, and something nobody else at the same scene could have envisioned. This interpretation, so central to my creative drive, is what I present in the hope that others will find familiarity, curiosity, and resonance in my work.
