Charlie’s Art

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Tim, a Great Falls native, has a neat entry about Charlie Russell: “A prophet has no honor in his home town. During his lifetime, Russell was well-known as an artist of note, but the people of Great Falls treated him as a sort of odd-ball, weirdo, and sad-sack. The life of any artist is hard, and Russell would go through periods where he had tons of cash followed by lengthy stretches in which none of his work sold and he lived hand-to-mouth.” Read the whole (short) thing.

  1. I like where Tim wrote later in the article:

    When Carter died in 1955, he established the Amon Carter Museum in Ft. Worth.

    . . .Just ’cause you die, doesn’t mean you can’t still be productive.

    Good article, still. Thanks for the post.
