Kelby Love's wildlife art featured at ASU Gammage

Arresting images of wildlife by artist Kelby Love will be featured in an exhibition at ASU Gammage Oct. 8-Nov. 19.

Love’s artwork conveys a sense of vitality that makes it more than a window into the natural world. His paintings seem to place the viewer into a particular living moment.

Love’s interest in nature dates back to his childhood, when he took many hunting and fishing trips with his father. He has observed, sketched and painted animals as long as he can remember and it has translated into first-hand knowledge of his subjects.

He works in oil over acrylic paint, with the subject drawn in detail in pencil. Love’s clients include magazines such as Field & Stream, Outdoor Life and National Geographic.
