Jenny Reeves-Johnson – 2020 Brinton 101
Jenny Reeves-Johnson has Sweetwater Studio in Lander, Wyoming, and is full time at the easel, table, the wheel, and plein air.
Jenny’s art reflects the western life she has embraced often revealing her conservation connection. Following an Art degree, she taught art on the Wind River Reservation, and several other Wyoming locations. Jenny evolved into managing ranches with her husband and daughter throughout the west; she kept her studio art inspired and growing for the whole ride.
Jenny is represented by Trailside Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming, and Gerald Peters Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and she looks forward to the Brinton Museum Small Works yearly show in Big Horn, Wyoming. During the month of December 2020, Jenny will be doing a special show/fundraiser for Wyoming Wildlife Federation/wildlife crossings- at Cowboy Coffee, Jackson, Wyoming. Jenny’s art is in collections throughout the country.
“Heyraven is my name for a particular raven that lives on the Clarks Fork River and entered my world via grain feeding time in the horse corral. At first, I just walked past him as he scoped me out from a corral post. I began a morning salutation to him saying “Hey raven”, and it stuck. Eventually, I could start hollering his name and he’d appear. He even followed me on some hikes and ski journeys. We maintained a respectful relationship for 5 years.
This iconic view of Red Canyon coming into Lander from the south can take your breath away. It can put you in a dream state. It is in a dream state.” Jenny Reeves-Johnson
