Trailside Galleries, in Jackson, Wyoming, hosted its first one-man show for California artist Logan Maxwell Hagege on Saturday evening, September 13. More than 300 collectors attended the event, many from out of town. The new collection of work from Hagege was comprised of 13 new, original oil paintings in a series of figural and landscape works that capture Native American culture juxtaposed with the arid landscape of the desert Southwest.
Due to high collector demand, the paintings were all sold via a lottery draw system in order to give all potential buyers a fair chance to purchase the painting(s) of their choice. Just before 6:00 pm, with the draw boxes filled to capacity, Managing Partner, Maryvonne Leshe introduced Hagege to the large crowd of collectors and art enthusiasts and the draw got under way. For those in the audience who were lucky winners, resounding cheers could be heard throughout the gallery space! Within a few minutes, all 13 paintings were sold.
“What an incredible evening for Logan, his collectors and for the gallery” observes Director Joan M. Griffith. “We knew he was going to come up with a tremendous body of work for his first one man show at Trailside, and clearly, he delivered in a very big way!” Griffith adds, “I think what is so exciting about representing Logan here at Trailside is that his paintings are resonating across many platforms; from the more contemporary minded art buyer to the traditional western art collector.”
Logan Hagege will have new works available at the Scottsdale gallery during its annual Fall Classics Exhibition and Sale on Saturday November 15 and he will also participate in the gallery’s Holiday Miniature show on Thursday, December 4.
Hagege is in the permanent collection of the Autry Museum, Briscoe Western Art Museum, Booth Western Art Museum, the Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art, and The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Most recently he received the Gene Autry Memorial Award for the best group of paintings at the 2014 Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles.
