Wild Beasts! Roy De Forest & Gaylen Hansen


The Schneider Museum of Art is currently presenting work by regional artists Roy De Forest and Gaylen Hansen through December 11, 1999. Visitors to the exhibition will enter a realm where heroic dogs travel through fantastic landscapes, where gigantic tulips menace bison, and the trout really are that big. Wild Beasts! features acclaimed contemporary artists Roy De Forest and Gaylen Hansen who create colorful irreverent, and humorous visual narratives based on their lives and experiences in the American west. De Forest and Hansen invest their visual tall tales with technical expertise and intellectual complexity earned from years of experience and experimentation. Each painting exemplifies exuberance and boundless curiosity, and will be a particularly satisfying treat for all viewers.

Wild Beasts! was organized by the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art, Great Falls, Montana. This exhibit is made possible in part by grants from the Richard Florsheim Art Fund, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Schneider Museum of Art is located on the Southern Oregon University campus on the corner of Siskiyou Boulevard and Indiana Street in Ashland.
