looking closely

WELCOME TO our special May issue, with which we mark the 49th anniversary of Southwest Art. We’re closing in on our 50th birthday in 2021, but in the meantime, we took a moment to look back at the past year’s issues and select some of our favorite individual artworks (see page 70). It was no easy task, considering that we published 30 Artists to Watch columns, nearly 100 previews of events, 30-plus artists’ profiles, and at least a dozen portfolios showcasing well over 100 artists altogether. That’s easily more than a thousand images that have appeared in our pages—what an abundance of creativity we have had the privilege to share with you! Choosing just a handful of those artworks as personal favorites is both a pleasure and a challenge, and I’ve…

christine troyer

EVEN BEFORE SHE started painting the landscape, longtime Mount Vernon, WA, resident Christine Troyer studied the beauty of her region with an artist’s eye, captivated by what she saw. It’s a world she came to know intimately as a rural postal worker in the nearby town of Arlington. Located about 50 miles northeast of Seattle, Arlington is nestled in the scenic western foothills of the Cascade Range. Says Troyer, “My biggest treat was getting outdoors and delivering the mail. It allowed me to observe what was happening, the seasons and the changing sunlight. I would think how beautifully light affected nature.” Troyer, who had enjoyed decorative-painting projects in her 20s, also started to think seriously about how she could capture her observations in paint. Then one day she passed by some…

anton nowels

WHILE PHOENIX, AZ, painter Anton Nowels wouldn’t describe himself as a landscape artist, he certainly exudes as much enthusiasm for his homeland’s sunlit deserts and turquoise skies as a landscape artist would. Likewise, if you ask the artist about his key influences, he’ll mention landscape painters whose works eloquently capture the dramatic light and monumental spirit of the West, from G. Russell Case to Maynard Dixon. “I come from an experimental background,” says Nowels, “so I wanted to find a way to set up that landscape experience on a microscale.” Enter the artist’s outdoor still lifes, which feature classic motifs like fruits, flowers, pottery, and vases. Nowels’ oil paintings, however, are not an homage to these objects so much as a vibrant tribute to the dynamic color relationships they display beneath…

aron belka

IF YOU WERE to view the diverse oeuvre of Aron Belka in person, one of the first things you’d immediately notice is the sheer size of most pieces. The New Orleans, LA, artist has portrayed everything from racehorses and their jockeys to shrimpers and their workboats, and some of these oil paintings measure more than 7 feet tall. In groups like the Portrait Society of America, Belka is making waves with his unusually large works; last year he garnered an exceptional merit award in the esteemed organization’s international competition. “I’m very open to experimenting and changing it up,” he explains, “because creatively, that’s what keeps me going.” And his work is about more than portraits. For his recent solo exhibition at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans, Belka completed a series of…

scottsdale art auction

THE RESPECTED Scottsdale Art Auction traditionally takes place in early April, “a great time of year” in Scottsdale, notes Jack A. Morris Jr., one of the three partners in the auction and owner of Morris Fine Arts in Hilton Head Island, SC. This year, due to public health concerns, the auction has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 16. There are also multiple ways to bid without attending: online via the auction’s website, through a newly developed app, by telephone, and by absentee ballot. No matter what form the auction takes, it’s sure to be stellar. “We had many more consignment offers than we could accommodate,” Morris says. “We had a hard time culling them down.” This year’s offerings are on view now in the auction showroom, located on the second floor…

logan maxwell hagege

OVER THE past decade, Logan Maxwell Hagege has solidified a reputation as one of the most compelling, sought-after artists working in the genre of western art today.
