Gary Niblett grew up in Carlsbad, New Mexico, in the midst of vast ranch lands. His talent was apparent from an early age, and local ranchers commissioned him to do horse portraits. Niblett attended the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, working in California as a commercial artist. He was eventually able to return to New Mexico and pursue a career in fine art.
Niblett is widely recognized as an exceptional western artist. At thirty-three, he became the youngest member to be elected to the prestigious art organization, the Cowboy Artists of America. His paintings are widely collected and have been exhibited in Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Taiwan, and Beijing.
For over 40 years, Nedra Matteucci has proudly represented Gary Niblett, an authentic, honest, and kind artist, who continues to paint the West he knows and loves. Niblett's exceptional paintings reflect his knowledge and experience of the West, rich with color and mood, and often large in scale.
