A rare  chance to enjoy the art of Pete Plastow opens at the Moab Museum through December 2017. Pete is a legend around these parts, and you’ll have a rare chance to see why and meet the man himself this Saturday night, December 9th at his reception beginning at 5pm. His show, hung specifically for Moab, features his recent works made in his home studio in Castle Valley. Pete is also a major anchor point in the history of the Moab Museum as creator of the Canyon Legacy Magazine. A self taught painter and sculptor of the West, he takes from his years of experience as a cowboy, ranch foreman and herdsman on ranches in Florida,Texas, Utah and Colorado and puts them into his paintings and sculptures. Plastow has been featured in the Cowboy Artists Calendar, Western Horseman, Art of the West, Southwest Art, Utah Highways, and Canyon Legacy Art. His works are in the collection of the Springville Museum of Art, Utah, Grand Junction Art Center, Colorado, North Central Texas College at Gainesville, Institute of Art, Albany, N.Y.. He has done background paintings for the Smithsonian American History Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Eisenhower Library. His work is in private collections in the United States, England, Europe, China and South Africa.  Pete describes his show and the pull of the West in life and work in KZMU friday at 12:30pm on ArtBeat with Christy Williams Dunton and Meg Stewart.
