Meadowlark Gallery: The Artist Biographies

Gary Carter
Realist oil painter and sculptor of historical northwestern scenes, Gary Carter was born in Hutchinson, Kansas in 1939 and lives near West Yellowstone, Montana. After unloading grocery trucks and serving in the Army, Carter went to the Art Center in Los Angeles where his realism and western subject matter were accepted. He then had one year as an illustrator before a one-person show of his western paintings sold out in Tucson, Arizona. He moved to Tucson and turned to art full-time when he was 33. In 1978, Carter won the Best of Show at the Montana Historical Society, and the following year he was a founding member of the Northwest Rendezvous Group and presently is a member of the Cowboy Artists of America.
