Brent Cotton is an award-winning, nationally recognized artist living in the Bitterroot Valley of western Montana. He prefers to paint in the tonalist/luminist style made popular in the late 1800s, seeking to create works that are mood-evoking and have a timeless quality. His work can be found in many private and corporate collections throughout the country.
An avid outdoorsman, Cotton can often be found standing in one of the local rivers with a fly rid in his hand or at the oars of his draftboat. The close proximity to amazing blue-ribbon trout streams is one of the many reasons he and his family make their home in Bitterroot Valley. This passion has let Cotton to focus on sporting art, particularly fly-fishing, as a common theme in his work.
He is represented by several galleries throughout the country and participates in many prestigious museum exhibitions including the Prix de West at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.
