Scenes from the old West will come to life in paintings and sculptures that will fill the galleries of the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, with the opening of the 10th annual Quest for the West® Art Show and Sale, Friday, Sept. 11, 2015. In one gallery, the only gallery like it in the state of Indiana, visitors can see and be the first to bid on millions of dollars in artwork from 50 coveted Western artists.  Meet Quest for the West Artist Dan Bodelson.

Born 1949, in Minneapolis, Minnesota; lives in Santa Fe

ALTHOUGH HE WAS BORN IN MINNESOTA, Dan Bodelson grew up in Colorado and New Mexico. After graduating from high school in Santa Fe, he attended the California College of the Arts in San Francisco/Oakland, receiving his BFA in 1972. Intending to pursue a career as an illustrator, his love of painting took him back to Santa Fe where he has lived and painted ever since.

Bodelson’s scenes of American Indian life and landscapes are inspired by Western literature and the natural beauty that surrounds him. He and his family also travel widely; he has painted in places as far-flung as Brazil, the Bahamas, Spain, Italy, and Mexico. His work can be found in many outstanding private and corporate collections. Since the early 1970s, Dan has been involved with many group, individual, and invitational shows.

This painting was inspired by the hunting trips with my Dad when I was a kid living Colorado. We often lost tracks in the streams. I never needed a stream to lose tracks.
