Cliff Cavin

Cliff Cavin’s paintings express the ruggedness and grandeur of the West.  A San Antonio native and lifelong resident, Cavin has been creating art for more than thirty years with a focus on landscape painting.  The drama of light and its effect on color is of particular interest to him. The artist’s keen observation and the immediacy and directness of his work create a clarity and sensitivity that expresses the emotional qualities of the western environment.

Cavin admires the work of Wilson Hurley because of the dramatic nature of his work, and Walt Gonske and Irby Brown because of the way they handle light and color.  Cavin’s work has been featured in Southwest Art, Art Talk, San Antonio Magazine, and Country Lifestyle Magazine.  He has participated in the Alamo Kiwanis Club’s Western Art Show and Sale at the Witte Museum in San Antonio, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum Shoe and Sale in Waco, and the American Plains Artists annual juried exhibition in Lubbock.
