August is American Artist Appreciation Month
QUICK! Name an American artist!
Who was the first to pop into your head? Was it Norman Rockwell? For many of us, he’s the one we think of right away. But there are so many others that shouldn’t be forgotten.
From Andy Warhol and Andrew Wyeth, to Georgia O’Keeffe and Mary Cassatt, America has been the birthplace for some of art history’s most talented and celebrated artists. Throughout August, all of them will be honored as we observe American Artist Appreciation Month.
But you don’t have to visit a museum to appreciate American fine art. The Park West Gallery Collection showcases a variety of works by American artists, including Norman Rockwell. And the works of Park West Gallery contemporary favorites such as Leslie Lew, Tim Yanke and Marcus Glenn, are also not to be missed.
So during the month of August, take a moment to learn more about American artists. You never know what you might discover.
