Greater Yellowstone painter Dave Hall will introduce 40 new oil landscapes at Harriman State Park in Island Park June 15-19. The show will feature paintings of the Henry’s Fork of the Snake.

Hall, who shows his work at Altamira Fine Art in Jackson Hole and at Tierney Fine Art in Bozeman, is an avid angler. He spends half the year on the Henry’s Fork, which flows through the Ranch.

The show will be held in the century-old Boy’s House at the Ranch, looking out on the River. It will coincide with the opening of the Henry’s Fork to fly fishing.

Several of the paintings will be displayed on the lawn looking out at the river.

Hall says of his work, “I am moved by the half-light of dawn and dusk, and my paintings are inspired by the Greater Yellowstone country. A piece of my heart resides there, due in large part to the poetry associated with convergence of family and friends, moving water and mayfly hatches.”

Hall’s book Moving Water: An Artist’s Reflections on Fly Fishing, Friendship and Family was published in 2019.

Patagonia’s Yvon Chouinard said of the memoir, which includes 25 paintings: “You will probably read this beautiful little book in the time of a cup of tea, but you will want to contemplate it over and over again.”

Dave’s art donations have raised more than $70,000 for river conservation, primarily for the Henry’s Fork Foundation.
