The 18th Illustrator Show features original art by the award-winning, nationally-known painter and printmaker Theodore Waddell from Hailey, Idaho. Waddell studied art at the Brooklyn Museum Art School in Brooklyn, New York. He received a Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Montana College and in 1968 received a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture and Printmaking from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. He was born in Billings, Montana, and spent his childhood in nearby Laurel.
The Brinton Museum’s 2023 show features twenty-eight of Waddell’s original illustrations from four of his children’s books including works from his popular Tucker the Bernese Mountain Dog series, as well as a selection of illustrations from his 2015 book Memories of Childhood. Writer Lynn Campion collaborates with Ted in creating Tucker’s fun-filled adventures.
This program is supported First Bank of Wyoming and a Community Support Arts Learning Grant from the Wyoming Arts Council.

A reception for the artist takes place March 7, from 5 to 7 P.M.
