Read Artist Bio

For Gary Carter, 40 years of unbridled adventure in Western Art followed an Art Center College of Design education. Instead of heading East for a position as a staff illustrator for an agency, Gary elected to become the resident artist at the Sun Ranch in the Madison Valley of Montana.

He continues to live his dream in splendid isolation overlooking Hebgen Lake, half way between Yellowstone Park and the Madison Valley his two favorite locations.

Adopted by the Crow in 1991, his Indian brothers are still one of his favorite subjects to paint, along with cavalry, mountain men,
bear, elk, trains and cow work.

Gary Carter’s work is a testament to the artist on horseback. He avoids the sameness of much western art by giving his work an historical perspective.

Gary has been an honored member of the Cowboy Artists of America for 37 years.
