A lot has happened since I posted my last blog entry so I thought I’d check in. Most importantly, last summer my painting schedule became so demanding that I decided to quit my day job and pursue my art career full time- and my wife went for it! While we were making big changes, we decided to move to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and buy a house.
I also picked up two more galleries, the beautiful Dick Idol Gallery in Whitefish, Montana, the West Lives On Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming. I am honored and thrilled, they are both galleries that I hoped would represent me someday.
I had a couple of shows in 2018 including the Out West show in Great Falls and a one man show in Dayton, Washington at the Wenaha Gallery. It was awesome to be at the Out West show for the first time. I know my dad would be so proud. This was something he and I both dreamed about for me. The Wenaha Gallery did a really nice write-up for their blog and newsletter, which you can read if you’re interested here: https://wenaha.com/montana-dreams-western-art-tobias-sauer/
I am excited, as always, to participate in Western Art Week in Great Falls. I am happy to announce that my 24″ x 40″ piece, Almost Home, will be at the Saturday night auction, 5:00 p.m. of the Russell Event at the Mansfield Convention Center. I also have a 24″ x 30″ piece, Swing Shift, that will be auctioned at the Elks Lodge at 11:00 a.m. Saturday morning. I will be at the Best Western Heritage Inn at the Out West Art Show again, but this time I will be in Room 226, so please drop by if you can! It is scheduled for March 19-23. I have attached images of some of the work that will be available in case you are not able to make it.
