RESUME



BACKGROUND: Art James West 1958 (a.k.a. Alan Heuer) grew up in Wyoming where he developed a deep passion for the landscape. After spending time on both coasts, New York City and Silicon Valley, in 2000 he came to Taos, New Mexico to immerse himself in the southwest art scene and develop his own unique style as a Western representational expressionist painter. Recognized as a contemporary of the Taos School, he is a Taos Icon and considers himself a Taos Post Modernist. In 2006 Art West won the Taos Fall Arts Festival "Taos Invites Taos" (now the Taos Select) best representational painting the first time he entered.

While in New York he studied with Kay Hazelip, instructor at the New York Art Student's League, classical landscape painting with Prix de West winner, Jim Wilcox and Gary Godbee of Seattle's Academy of Fine Art. As with many fine artists, Art is accomplished in several disciplines, although he now dedicates himself exclusively to his painting. He is a published author -- "Search for Harmony", a certified information engineer (Certified Lotus Notes Professional) and a Master of Arts cum laude (CUNY) in clarinet performance, having performed in all the major New York City concert halls (including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center).

In 2013 he moved to Santa Fe and opened "Art West Studio" in the Plaza Mercado.
