Kim Douglas Wiggins exhibition

Join the opening reception of painter Kim Douglas Wiggins on Aug. 3 at 5 p.m. at the Manitou Galleries, 123 W. Palace Ave. Wiggins grew up on a ranch in southern New Mexico. At the age of 12, an art dealer visiting his parent’s ranch discovered his budding talent and began marketing his work in Scottsdale, Arizona. By the mid-1970s, he was painting in oil and working as a graphic artist for a national equine magazine. During the 1980s he experimented with various forms of impressionism and modernism eventually leading to his distinctive style. Today, Wiggins is recognized as one of the creative forerunners behind the current Modern West Movement. His uniquely modern vision of the West often places his work alongside celebrated icons of Western Realism as a powerfully, contrasting voice of creative vision. Wiggins has exhibited for the past 20 years at the Autry Museum’s Masters of the American West. He has also exhibited with the Briscoe Western Art Museum; Booth Western Art Museum; Denver Art Museum; National Museum of Wildlife Art; C. M. Russell Museum; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; Museum of New Mexico; De Young Museum; National Society of American Impressionists and the Other Side of the West.
