Scott Tallman Powers in the Quest-for-the-West

Following in the footsteps of the Walter Ufer, Victor Higgins, and E. Martin Hennings, Scott Tallman Powers has also left Chicago to live in the wild west.

So it only seems right that his paintings be displayed at the Eiteljorg Museum, which is where three of them will be hanging for the next four weeks in the highly selective "Quest for the West" national exhibition of Western Art.

Though I think his kind of realism has more in common with the earlier masters than with the other successful artists in this show.

His paintings seem to be more like "this is how I see what's there" rather than "here is a fantasy you are going to love"
