The “Walter Piehl Retrospective” art exhibit opens Thursday, June 20, at The Arts Center. The public can view the evolution of Walter Piehl’s painting style.

Piehl is an authority on history and art with a “lifelong passion” for Western Americana. He was raised in a ranching family that rode horses, raised stock and participated in rodeos.

Piehl is scheduled to attend the July 18 Downtown Arts Market, where he will demonstrate his painting process. He will be accompanied by his son, cowboy poet Shadd Piehl.

Piehl’s exhibition is sponsored by the North Dakota Art Gallery with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.
