WELCOME TO LOOKING WEST ART GALLERY LOCATED IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE !

WHEN YOU COME THROUGH OUR FRONT DOORS IT’S AS IF YOUR "LOOKING WEST" TO THE GREAT ART COMMUNITIES OF SANTA FE, TAOS, SEDONA, SCOTTSDALE BY THE ART AND ARTIFACTS TO BE FOUND WITHIN. LOOKING WEST ART IS THE RESULT OF A LIFE-LONG-LOVE OF AMERICAN WESTERN HISTORY, CULTURE AND THE ARTS THAT REPRESENT IT.

EVEN AS A YOUNGSTER, MOST SATURDAYS WERE SPENT WALKABOUT MANHATTAN  VISITING MUSEUMS AND GALLERIES. I WAS FORTUNATE TO MEET MANY AMAZING ARTISTS ON THE STREETS OF NEW YORK. ONE SUCH EVENT INVOLVED A CONVERSATION WITH MARC CHAGALL. IT WAS THEN I REALIZED MY "IDEA" OF GREAT ART WAS (AND REMAINS) REPRESENTATIONAL WESTERN LANDSCAPES.

RETURNING FROM VIET NAM, LATER IN LIFE, I MOVED TO OKLAHOMA CITY AND  DISCOVERED A GREAT AMERICAN TREASURE, THE COWBOY HALL OF FAME!  SO, AGAIN, EVERY SATURDAY WOULD FIND ME IN A MUSEUM.  I ALSO HAD THE GOOD FORTUNE TO MEET THE HALL'S FIRST CURATOR AND GREAT CA ARTIST, JIM BOREN! HE INTRODUCED ME TO A BROAD SPECTRUM OF WORKS FROM HISTORIC TO CONTEMPORARY - IN FACT MEETING SOME OF THE EARLIEST MEMBERS OF THE "CA" -COWBOY ARTISTS OF AMERICA.

OVER THREE DECADES I  COLLECTED THE ART AND ARTIFACTS OF THE WEST.  NOW, THE SEED WHICH WAS PLANTED, WAY BACK IN OKLAHOMA, HAS FINALLY BORN ITS’ FRUIT, MY "LOOKING WEST ART GALLERY"!
