Show of Hands Gallery is known for one of the most unique displays of handmade art in Denver, Colorado. Today’s Artist Spotlight featuring Native Vermont is no exception. Artist, Ryan Fowler of Native Vermont Studio, creates paintings sure to bring a smile to your face.
These retro style, whimsical paintings are bound to liven up any living space in your home or workplace. Skiing dogs, forest moose, and other animals taking unlikely poses fill Fowler’s canvases. Stylized like posters from the past, Pugs, Labrador Retrievers, and many other types of dogs balance beer bottles and wine glasses on their nose, or balance themselves atop a bicycle. Perched at the bow of a canoe, a Yellow Lab is ready for the next adventure. Fowler’s sense of humor and affection for dogs comes through in the subject matter of many of his paintings. His appreciation of the outdoors and forest animals comes through in various other of his compositions, as well. These pieces feature stately moose, burly bears, or simply the trees in a forest scene, all done in Fowler’s characteristic style.

Imagine how surprised and impressed your guests will be to see your family name or company title included in the text on one of Native Vermont’s original paintings. It will make for a lively conversation piece.
