MCGUIRE & HINES STUDIOS: Long-time DSC supporter, Life Member and exhibitor - Internationally Collected - Jan Martin McGuire - artist, naturalist and conservationist - is pleased to partner for the first-time with sculptor John Lewton to present this unique and exciting collaborative bronze and acrylic work for auction. Lewton, well-known in the wild goat and sheep hunting industry, has guided and participated in hunts all over the world. He is also a taxidermist which gives him incredible insight into the anatomy and behavior of these animals. Jan and her husband James Gary Hines II - nature photographer - have invited Lewton to exhibit with them at their booth this year as a guest sculptor. Jan likes to paint what she has experienced herself. However, when it is a subject she has not seen in the wild, she will do extensive research, anywhere from conferring with scientists, to having in-depth conversations with hunters and looking at their photos/video footage. The painting portrayed in this montage is an example of artwork commissioned by Corey Knowlton. Jan worked closely with him, reviewing videos and studying the body structure and coloration of a Sindh Ibex. She obtained this same sculpture from Lewton and it is the favorite in her collection of bronzes. The form and beauty of the sculpture inspired Jan to create a painting exclusively to go with this collaboration. It will be an acrylic on canvas and will come beautifully museum-framed ready to hang. UPDATE: Note that the painting for this auction item is not yet complete. The artist will finish it for the winning bidder and will arrange delivery directly after Convention. DALLAS SAFARI CLUB THANKS MCGUIRE & HINES STUDIOS AND JOHN LEWTON FOR THIS 100% DONATION.
