Past Exhibit May 6, 2016 - Dec. 31, 2016

These limited edition fine art prints created by Gary Hawk, a renowned Western and wildlife watercolor artist, capture the mood, quality and simplistic lifestyle that is uniquely our local heritage. The prints were bequeathed to the Tread of Pioneers Museum by the Vernon Summer estate and feature Vernon Summer, the quintessential cowboy, working on his ranch in Sidney, just south of Steamboat Springs.

The fine art prints in this exhibit were given to Summer by Gary Hawk. Following Summer’s death in 2012, the Tread of Pioneers Museum received the collection of fine art prints along with many other items of historical significance from four generations of Summer heirlooms.
