The Western Art of Paul Kethley

Paul, a Colorado artist creates breathtaking original oil paintings on canvas of dramatic western landscapes that include southwest art subjects, wildlife, and sporting art. Kethley's western fine art paintings are carefully painted by the application of rich deposits of pure color that give each painting a textured look. In many of his paintings Paul places Native American, cowboy and fly-fishing figures in Colorado mountain landscapes in such a way that reveals a story - free for the imagination of the viewer.

From One Dance, Creation, a work of art celebrating the Haudenosaunee creation story, is on permanent display in the Canisius College Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library. The work was commissioned by the Canisius College Native American Art Project Committee and the Friends of the Office of Multicultural Programs (OMP) Advisory Board to recognize and celebrate the importance of Native American culture on campus and throughout the region.
Born at the Tuscarora Indian Nation in Western New York and an enrolled member of the Onondaga Nation, Professor Eric Gansworth, a writer and visual artist, as well as a Professor of English and the Lowery Writer-in-Residence at Canisius, created the work for the College.

The Dawn Sprinkler; he has a fan to
travel through time. Painting by Virgil Nez. The art of Navajo artist Virgil Nez is a good example of someone capturing and conveying the cultural symbols which, among other things, communicate the integrity of the Navajo as a community of people. Virgil Nez currently resides on the Diné Bekayah (the Navajo Reservation), which is located between the four sacred mountains within the boundaries of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and the State of Utah (called "Four Corners"). His home is at Many Farms, near Chinle, Arizona, fourteen miles down the mouth of the great Canyon DeChelly. He received his B.A. in fine arts in 1991 from North Arizona University and began receiving awards for his painting in 1992; he continues to win awards for his unique art style. In the February 2005 Arizona Sentinel (Let's Go feature), this report was filed with the picture below as illustration of his work.
