TOM TEMPLE

 

Featuring the original works of Tom Temple of Glendive, Montana.

     Tom is a native of eastern Montana, having been raised on his family farm and ranch along the Yellowstone River. His forefathers homesteaded this region in the late 1800's near Intake, Montana. Despite encouragement from his boyhood teachers to pursue a career in the Arts, Tom chose to achieve his education in the Earth Sciences, Geography and Education from Dickinson State University in Dickinson, North Dakota. He taught the Sciences in Mitchell, South Dakota and Lander, Wyoming, but today teaches World Geography and Field Geology at Dawson County High School in Glendive. He also coaches basketball and track, and in the summer works daily at the family ranch.

     His appreciation of the open country of eastern Montana is evident in his art, as he frequently develops expansive landscapes of the badland hills of Makoshika State Park and Yellowstone Valley as well as some of the local wildlife of eastern Montana and western North Dakota. His excellent command of color and lighting produces dramatic effects in oil, his preferred medium, as well as his work in pencil and watercolor.

     Tom received the "People's Choice Award" at the Prairie Rose Art show in the summer of 2006 for a piece he entitled "Sandstone Outcrop", and in the fall of 2006 a work entitled "Lower Yellowstone Fall Evening", seen on this webpage below, was selected for auction at the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame located in Medora, North Dakota. His work is featured and is offered for sale from The DCAU Gallery in Glendive, Montana, and the Crossroads Gallery located in Hettinger, North Dakota.
