The James Memorial Art Center is proud to present an exhibition by Greg Walter titled "Missouri Valley Gold: Landscapes of the Missouri River Watershed". This exhibition will be open November 10-December 10, 2015. "My most recent series of paintings explores the beauty and variety of landscape found in the Missouri River Valley. The diversity of this landscape in which I live is profound, and I believe that a landscape artist such as myself could spend a lifetime exploring its subtleties without growing bored with it".
