We would like to congratulate Jim Wagner on winning The 2013 Governor's Award for Excellence in Art

Jim Wagner

The market for Jim Wagner's art is exceptionally strong, both for new work and older pieces on the secondary market. Paintings of landscapes and his singular animals are perhaps the most popular subjects, though his paintings of women (particularly those painted in the late 70s and early 80s) are also in great demand. His market has been strengthened in recent years by the publication of the book, Jim Wagner, Taos, An American Artist, by Stephen Parks. Nevertheless, his art is still quite affordable in comparison to other painters in the region of comparable reputation and skill, a fact perhaps best explained by Wagner's unpretentious attitude of himself as a "workingman."
