For three decades Garry McMichael has been traveling the back roads of Middle America, especially the Ozarks, capturing its beauty with the camera, charcoals, pastels and paint. Garry is constantly searching for those fleeting moments when the landscape, the atmospheric conditions and the ever-changing light come together in a flash of visual inspiration.

Whether you are inspired by the ebb and flow of the Mississippi River, a quiet walk through the rugged Ozark mountains, or watching a summer thunderstorm roll across the prairie you will appreciate the art of Garry McMichael.

Garry's portrait, pastel by Lisa Ober.

I am a visual artist; a photographer and a painter. Being blessed with a head full of ideas, it is through the challenge of turning these ideas into reality that I find expression for my photography and paintings. The natural world and the environment have always been a powerful influence in my ideas, but so has mankind and his relationship to the environment. A rock is nature, but man can stack rocks and turn them into a symbol, or a fence, or a shelter or even an exquisite sculpture. It is where nature and man overlap I find the most interesting ideas and motivation.

Sometimes I envision a metaphoric message or a story when creating my imagery, but more often than not I simply want to share a moment, a mood, or the beauty of an object or a place. It is my hope that the inspiration and the depth of feeling that motivated me to photograph or paint a particular subject will also resonate with the viewer.
