Tom Taylor: Wildlife Designs

2nd Floor Foyer Gallery | May 27 -  Sept 17, 2017


About the exhibition:

New Acquisitions by the renowned wildlife artist, Tom Taylor. 

Throughout his seven decades of life, Tom Taylor has worked in many genres of art. He became best known for his boldly stylized wildlife images, first developed when he lived in Zambia where he produced the 1981 calendar for the Wildlife Conservation Society of Zambia. Upon Taylor’s return to the U.S.A., opportunities became available for him to establish the Tom Taylor Brand with his unique paintings of animals and birds. Many companies, national and international, licensed his images for use on posters, calendars and a host of various products. One series of fine art posters for the Field Museum of Natural History opened the door to projects for the World Wildlife Fund, The Audubon Society and The National Wildlife Foundation. His wildlife paintings are represented in the permanent collections of The Audubon Society, The Leigh Yawkey Wildlife Art Museum, The National Wildlife Art Museum and The James Ford Bell Museum of Natural History.

Tom (AKA the Poet Spiel) resides in Pueblo with his partner Paul.
