Tthe artwork of Kathryn Mapes Turner has unfolded from the mountain valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. As a daughter of the Northern Rockies, she was born as the fourth generation and raised on the Triangle X Ranch in Grand Teton National Park. With watercolors and oil paints, Turner responds with visual contemplations of beauty in hopes of sharing this love of the sublime with others through her work. She believes that the small beauties we encounter in life awakens something in all of us.

Her work has been exhibited in the Buffalo Bill Cody Mueum, the Charlie Russell Museum, The Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Brinton Museum, the Phippen Museum and the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. She has been selected as this year’s Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival Featured Artist.
