America the Beautiful

On May 29, the same day as the opening of Immel² New Perspectives at Wilder Nightingale Fine Art, the virtual show America the Beautiful opens, as well. Peggy and I are proud to be included in Mary Williams Fine Art's online exhibition. It’s massive in scale, features some of the country’s foremost artists and 20% of the proceeds will be contributed to Feeding America. Both the artist and Mary Williams Fine Art will donate 10% of their sales to this worthy charity.

America the Beautiful started with a question, “What could the gallery do to promote, through the beauty of fine art, the profound wonder of America?”

Yacht Club, Salton Sea CA



Wagon Ruts, Clines Corner, NM


Walking Rain, Navajo Nation, AZ

The answer Mary Q. Williams concluded was to build a show that honors our country through artworks from all 50 states by artists from all 50. She writes, “I am very serious about making this successful on a national, as well a charitable level.” 

As you peruse the scope of the show, I hope you’ll find an art piece that touches you, that will grace your home or workplace and that will help Feeding America continue its important work.

Feeding America supports 200 food banks and 60,000 local food pantries. It’s the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. For more than forty years it has responded to the needs of people struggling with food insecurity. Feeding America’s goal is to win the fight against hunger in America.

Did you know that more than 40 million Americans including 13 million children face hunger every day? No community is spared by this tragic reality in wealthiest nation on earth. You can help Feeding America in its quest to feed hungry Americans by buying an art piece from American the Beautiful. I can’t think of anything more worthwhile and rewarding.

Mary has kindly accepted all ten of my photographs. I usually limit the number of images in a blog post to six, but this time here’s a preview of all ten. 

Thanks for exploring America the Beautiful. I hope you find a painting, sculpture, or a photograph you love. It’s a purchase you can feel good about.

Both Mary Williams and Rob Nightingale are lucky to have your work, particularly the fine selections you have made for the upcoming exhibits. Not being 100% sure whether I had seen the Wagon Ruts, Clines Corners or the Walking Rain shot, I have to comment on those. They are both wonderful wanderings into New Mexico and America, and I am glad you included them here. Congratulations on the two exhibits and thanks for keeping your followers in your creative loop!

A great collection of images that represent the theme so well. Congratulations Steve for being included with these striking images. Bravo. Terry T.

Thank you my stalwart friends. It's not hard to assemble ten good ones out of a million images. Fifteen would be really hard. I exaggerate for effect. Daryl, Wagon Ruts has been posted and hung in shows. It was even a CD cover for a Texas folk singer, Jordy Baizan. He licensed the image for his group's new CD ten years ago or so. He went solo shortly after that and I don't if the CD was ever released. Walking Rain is a golden oldie. I don't know if I've exhibited it.

All of these qualify as favorites. That's for sure.

Thank you both for your friendship and support.
