Fulton, Cris
Discipline: Photography and Drawing

Chris FultonBowman artist Cris Fulton specializes in pastel pencil drawings of sunflowers and the North Dakota landscape. She has a BA in art from the University of North Dakota, and has been an artist and photographer for well over three decades. Her work has been shown at galleries in Minneapolis, Taos, Santa Fe, North Dakota, and Montana. The grasslands and badlands of southwestern North Dakota have been a tremendous inspiration to her, and she thanks her lucky stars for such a splendid “backyard.”

She has shown her art at the offices of Governor John Hoeven, the Rider Gallery at Dickinson State University, and at Dickinson State University Art Gallery. The North Dakota Art Gallery Association sponsored a touring exhibition of her prairie landscapes from 2009 to 2011. Several of her large colorful sunflower drawings are in the collection of Jamestown Regional Medical Center. In 2012, Fulton won the Best of Show award for a grasslands drawing at the 42nd Annual Badlands Art Show in Dickinson. Cris has been invited to exhibit at the WaterWorks Art Museum in Miles City, Montana and the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame in Medora the last few years. She has also shown at the Matthews Opera House & Arts Center in Spearfish, South Dakota and the Bismarck Downtown Artists Cooperative recently.

“Southwestern North Dakota is a vast and truly awesome territory where you can still witness buffalo herds, bighorn sheep, elk, antelope, wild horses, eagles, and hawks. I love the wildness and wideness, the solitude, silence, and spirit of this frontier region of America. It is my desire to share the expansive liberation, the reverence, the wonder, the beauty, and the joy that I have experienced out here on my home ground, my home on the range.”
