Congratulations to Jim and Jim!
The A. Banks team is excited to share a wealth of good news from one of our esteemed wildlife painters: Jim Bortz. It's no secret Jim is a star of the western wildlife art community, but this extraordinary painter's work over the last few years has been bringing increasing attention to his undeniable talent. With a recent feature in Western Art & Architecture and an invitation to participate in this year's Western Visions Show at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Bortz is making waves throughout the art world. We couldn't be prouder to represent his awe-inspiring works of art, and we hope you'll come by the gallery to see why.
Another gem of the A. Banks walls, Jim Dick has long been an iconic figure of the local and western art community, but even after all these years his work continues to turn heads. While his paintings have never gone unnoticed, it is no less exciting to see this remarkable painter earning high profile publications over and over again. With his recent appearance in the Big Sky Journal's 2021 Fly Fishing Edition, Jim Dick received glowing praise for decades of consistent and beautiful work. And from a self-taught painter no less! New works will be gracing the A. Banks collection in no time, so be sure to check them out before they're gone!
