2023 Bighorn Rendezvous Artist – Greg Packard
Born in Boise, Idaho in 1970, and currently residing in western Colorado, Gregory Packard paints in the tradition of the Impressionists where he finds the deepest artistic connections. Gregory’s work is represented in numerous public and private collections throughout the U.S., and abroad. He is represented by leading galleries, primarily in the western U.S. and has had a number of solo shows, including the inaugural opening of The Brinton Museum in 2015. You can find his work in publications including the most recent feature article in Southwest Art, Oct/Nov. of 2022. He has a Bachelors degree in English from Boise State University. Though he loved creating artwork from the very beginning he did not pursue it professionally until his late 20s, and did so through workshops and self-study. Finding great inspiration in the quiet solitude of nature and the life around him, he simply paints what he loves.
“At its best, painting is the capturing of a glimpse, the pinpoint of a memory or the scent of a flower—it is experienced and gone quickly. What is left is the interaction between the artist and the feeling a moment or place created, then extended to you through paint.” —Gregory Packard
