Over the past decade, current professor of drawing and painting at the College of Charleston, John Hull, has had his own solo exhibitions at the Ucross Foundation's Art Gallery. He's also played part in group exhibitions and been an artist in residence multiple times.
His most recent exhibit will be on display beginning today and it's entitled “This Sporting Life.” It will feature paintings of everything from cowboys and bucking broncos at the Johnson County Fairgrounds to base-clearing home runs.
Hull explains how he first got inspired by rodeo culture in northeast Wyoming.
Hull's exhibit will feature paintings from his first regional rodeo in Johnson County. He says he hopes his paintings reveal a certain spirit found in the small moments of life that end up timeless, immediate and purely human.
“This Sporting Life” will be on display at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery starting July 2nd, running through September 14th. The Ucross Foundation's gallery will be closed on July 4th and 5th in observance of Independence Day, but they're open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
