Art Love: Ira Yeager
I was thrilled to hear an artist I long admire is having a solo show at a Santa Fe gallery that has proved to be a favorite on my wanderings through the many Santa Fe galleries.
Ira Yeager is one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most significant and widely collected contemporary painters.
In his nearly sixty year career, he has mastered a distinct style and subject matter, from deeply reverential Native American portraiture to impressionistic landscape paintings inspired by his many travels around the globe, his current home in Northern California, and the vistas of his beloved New Mexico.
In celebration of a prodigious career, ‘Portraits of Nobility’ is the artist’s first solo exhibition both at LewAllen Galleries and in Santa Fe. The show includes some of the artist’s most important works: a selection from Yeager’s long history, begun as a young painter in the 1960s, of creative and reverent dedication to expressing his own conception of the beauty and historic nobility of Native American people.
See his beautiful works in many homes. Such as this House Beautiful feature
Have a great week ahead.
I will be back next week with my regular Artist Spotlight Series.
