Jon Revett Artist Bio:
I have spent the last twenty years making and promoting contemporary art. By exposing the modern aesthetic found in the most unlikely of places, I have become a cultural missionary, broadening the horizons of the citizens of the Llano Estacado through my art. In the past, I apostatized the avant-garde by establishing an underground gallery/punk rock club, but my artistic foundation was built during my time spent as the tour guide of Robert Smithson's Amarillo Ramp. Currently as the Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at West Texas A&M University, I expose countless football players, cowboys, and uninitiated art students to my passion for art. While I aspire for an international art career, I continue to fight the good fight regionally because I believe in the transcendental role of art. From prehistoric hand prints on cave walls to that fateful earthwork north of Amarillo, art gauges and guides humanity's development. I carry on this tradition by synthesizing storytelling, education and beauty with my artwork.
