This young man is Mel Johnston. Born and raised in Montana, Mel is a skilled craftsman who traps, does wildlife engraving and primarily tans buckskin for a living. As a young boy, he was taught by his grandfather the way of life he now enjoys. Mel, as a member of the National Association of Primitive Riflemen, attends rendezvous around the country, selling his tanned hides, engravings, tepees and lodges. Here stands a proud man who appreciates the land from which he makes his living but in his mind he stands on the edge of yesterday.


Mort Solberg
Solberg adds, "To paint what you see is one thing but to feel what you see and to be able to paint that impression is something else again." The artist has created a distinctive, timeless style by contrasting loose and flowing forms with sharp edges and tight definition. His interest in art began early and he pursued it through the years at the West Technical High School and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Following graduation, Solberg entered the world of commercial art, first working at an art studio, then for American Greetings. He was content to work successfully in that field until a job as art director for another card copy brought him west. There he was inspired to explore photography, eventually returning to painting with a new point of view and a vital new approach. The result has been art that has been lauded across the continent. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art and the American Bicentennial Gallery, among others. His honors include a purchase award from the National Watercolor Society’s top award, and an award of merit from the Society of Animal Artists. Solberg is a member of the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society. The result is also art that has been lauded across the continent. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art and the American Bicentennial Gallery, among others.
