A Walk in the Wild
Artist Reception and Gallery Talk:
Saturday, October 1, 2016, 2-5 pm
Edward Aldrich is an artist dedicated to reaching beyond the realistic rendering of wildlife and the natural world. He is convinced that conveying the inherent being of an animal is integral to his work. His style breathes life into his subjects and invokes the viewer into feeling that he or she is actually a witness to the scene. The viewer is not left to simply look and appreciate, but is drawn into experiencing the essence of what is depicted. In short, his is an art of feeling as well as portrayal.

Edward Aldrich - A Walk in the Wild
Opening Reception and Gallery Talk Saturday, October 1, 2-5pm
Exhibition showing through Nov 5, 2016
There’s nothing quite so thrilling as a candid encounter with Nature on its own terms. Celebrated wildlife artist
Edward ‘Ned’ Aldrich is an unsurpassed master at capturing those moving, mysterious, magical moments on
canvas, and this October guests to “A Walk in the Wild” at Evergreen Fine Art Gallery will enjoy intimate
glimpses of many of the West’s most secretive subjects in all of their unguarded glory.
“Ned’s work speaks to the soul of his subjects,” says Evergreen Fine Art’s exhibitions director, Doug Kacena.
“His reverence for the natural world is clearly reflected in his striking depictions of the Rocky Mountain wildlife.”
Beginning with an Artist Reception and Gallery Talk from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 1, “A Walk in the Wild” will
run through the end of the month and feature nearly 20 new works by the award-winning Golden oil painter, each
one showcasing the stunning realism and dramatic force that’s made Aldrich a favorite of collectors from coast to
coast and beyond the seas. If his subtle brush conveys the coarseness of the wolf’s winter coat and the wild
aggression of the bull-elk’s challenge, his unsurpassed awareness of nature’s infinite unaffected attitudes gives
them presence and place.
“Each painting expresses a different concept or feel,” explains Aldrich, a 1987 Rhode Island School of Design
graduate who was juried into the Society of Animal Artists just four years later at the age of 26. “One might be
based on color, one of echoing shapes, one on interesting lighting, or one eliciting the feeling of power or
mystery. My hope is that the viewers get a small amount of the feeling I intended from the differing pieces.”
Those fortunate viewers taking “A Walk in the Wild” can rest assured they’ll get a lot more than a little of
nature’s instinctual intensity and quiet spectacle. Aldrich’s potent realism and almost empathic connection with
his subjects have earned him the respect and admiration of artists and art lovers across the West, and this year
he’s been named as the featured artist of Jackson Hole’s prestigious Fall Arts Festival. What’s more, one of
Aldrich’s images was chosen to be the public face of “Western Visions,” an important festival fundraiser benefitting
the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
“I was stunned to be called for this honor,” says Aldrich says. “A huge surprise, and a thrill to be representing this
And a rare opportunity for folks who appreciate truly superb wildlife art to find such a remarkable trove of it
gathered together for “A Walk in the Wild.”
“I’m just thankful to Evergreen Fine Art, and to all of those who take the time to attend,” Aldrich says. “It’s a
treat to be able to see a large body of work in one space like this, and I’m always thrilled when others enjoy
