Madaras Gallery is honored to have been selected to host this very special event. The show will include his signature wolves, coyotes and Native American portraits. "I am very excited to have my art on display in Tucson again,” Nieto stated.
To add to the excitement, Nieto painted his very first wildcat exclusively for this show in his bold and colorful style. The wildcat painting will be auctioned live at 11:30 am during the show.
