Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery in Tucson, Arizona, is hosting an exhibition titled Young Guns: 3 of the Nation’s Top Western Artists Under 40, now in its final week. The three featured artists are Glenn Dean, Josh Elliott, and Logan Maxwell Hagege.
 
The rugged canyons, imposing rock formations, broad skies, and great expanses of land that characterize the American West also provide much of the inspiration for these young artists. A significant portion of the artworks have already sold, but fine examples from each featured painter are still available.

Glenn Dean (b. 1976) credits the Early California and Western landscape painters of the early 1900s with helping him to find his own art form, in which he aims to create similarly interesting compositions with a sensitivity to the color of light. Dean’s art has been featured in numerous national magazines, including Western Art and Architecture, Southwest Art, Art of the West, and American Artist. He was the recipient of the first ever Emerging Artist Award presented by Art and Antiques magazine, and he was the recipient of the Grand Prize and Artists’ Choice awards at the inaugural Tucson/Sonoran Desert Museum Plein Air Invitational.

Josh Elliott (b. 1973) writes, “A successful painting, to me, represents nature’s truth filtered through the artist.” Elliott finds inspiration for his art in nature and in the example of his father, Steve Elliott, a wildlife artist. Elliott has shown his work across the United States, in the Prix de West (Oklahoma City), West Select (Phoenix), American Masters (New York), Quest for the West (Indianapolis), Maynard Dixon Country (Mount Carmel, Utah), Western Rendezvous of Art (Helena, Montana), and Western Visions (Jackson Hole) exhibitions.

A native of Southern California, Logan Maxwell Hagege (b. 1980) studied at a local art academy, Associates in Art, where he developed his interest and refined his skill in painting. Hagege lists Gustav Klimt, N.C. Wyeth, T.W. Dewing, and Maynard Dixon as the artists of the past who, alongside the landscapes of Southern California, the American Southwest, and the Northeast coast, have most inspired him.
 
Young Guns: 3 of the Nation’s Top Western Artists Under 40 will be on view through March 7.
 
Mark Sublette Medicine Man Gallery is located at 6872 E. Sunrise Drive, Suite 150, in Tucson, Arizona.
