Abigail Gutting paints to portray the culture and wildlife of the American West. Her early training began when her artist mother, Susan, who had trained at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, allowed Gutting to work alongside her in the studio. She has also studied at the Frye Museum in Seattle, Washington, under Barbara Benedetti-Newton, at Glacier National Park under Phil Starke, and at the Scottsdale Artists’ School under artists Ray Roberts, Bruce Greene, and Greg Beecham. In 2013, she was named one of Southwest Art magazine’s “21 Under 31 Young Artists to Watch.” While Gutting’s love of art and growth as an artist were cultivated by her mom, her love of animals and the American West was fostered by time she spent working with her veterinarian father through her teens and early twenties. Those rich memories contribute to her vision for her art. She looks forward to a lifetime of growth and opportunity as an artist. Gutting currently lives in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho. Her work is represented by Coeur d’Alene Galleries, Dick Idol Gallery, and Bozeman Trail Gallery.
