RANDY VAN DYCK
Randy is an artist who works in acrylic paint in a very realistic style. His current series of paintings draws inspiration from previous works, as well as Audubon, conservation, and some contemporary masters.
They are a mixture of landscape, surrealism, still life and abstract which combine to tell a story of individual ecosystems within the state of Idaho.
The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin holds an annual exhibit and conference called "Birds in Art", the largest show of it's kind in the world. Until this year, Randy had been applying for inclusion in this show for 30 years with no success; he has been accepted with this current body of work.
Randy graduated from the Art Institute of Seattle in 1987 and has since built a career both as a painter and business owner of Van Dyck Frame Design and Capitol Contemporary Gallery in Boise.
Randy received the 2019 City of Boise Mayor's Award for Excellence in the Arts followed by the 2020 Governor's Award for Excellence in the Arts.
His work has been featured in numerous publications including the cover of International Artist Magazine.
