Each year, Denver welcomes the National Western Stock Show and spends January celebrating all things Western. In tandem with this city-wide event, Denver Arts & Venues presents “The Big Blue Sky,” an exhibition of artworks from well-known Western contemporary artist Theodore Waddell. 

About the Artist
Born in 1941 in Billings, Montana, painter, sculptor and rancher Theodore Waddell stands as one of the West’s most celebrated contemporary artists. His paintings and prints of “landscapes with animals” couple abstract expressionist technique with representations of the Black Angus cattle, horses and bison that populate the high plains and mountain valleys of today’s ranching West. 

Named as Artist of the Year by Yellowstone Art Museum, Theodore Waddell was also presented the Montana Governor’s Award for the Visual Arts in 2015. His works are shown in museums and galleries throughout the United States and can be found in private and public collections all over the world.

The exhibition is open to ticket-holders during performances. For a private tour, please contact Peter.Dearth@denvergov.org
