Rather than proposing A Brushwork Roundup: Western Paintings and Drawings by Craig Sheppard, as a cross-section of the artist’s career, the co-curators, Jim McCormick and Fred Reid have designed an exhibition that focuses on Sheppard’s abiding fascination with horses. Viewers can expect to be challenged by Sheppard’s variations on the theme of horse and rider. The artist reached back to earlier times in Nevada when it was the least urban of all the states. Today the exhibit will resonate with those who venture beyond urban limits and encounter still existent ranches, cowboys and wild horses on Nevada’s rangeland.
