Buy A Stunning Painting And You'll Be Supporting MoJo's Commitment To Conservation Journalism

Bozeman artist Steve Osman is donating proceeds from the sale of works to our investigative reporting fund

Bozeman painter Steve Osman loves nature so much he wants to make sure it’s protected for future generations. And he is a proud Greater Yellowstonean.

For a stretch of time he lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming before he and his wife, Mary Lou, left the Tetons to start a new life, raising their daughters in Costa Rica and founding a whitewater raft company that combined wildlife watching and pura vida adventure. In Montana, Osman has been a flyfishing guide, restauranteur and maven of Bridger Bowl’s legendary “cold smoke” deep powder.

In his being, Osman feels a deep bond with the natural world and wants to do everything he can to protect it for his daughters and newly-minted grandsons.

Believing that fine art can be a powerful tool for solidifying the connection people have to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, he informed Mountain Journal recently that he wants to help us advance our mission of exploring the intersection between humans and nature, all in the name of conservation.

Currently on display at Wild Crumb Bakery in Bozeman, Montana (600 North Wallace) is a series of contemporary wildlife art paintings that celebrate the beauty and mythology of sandhill cranes. From now until Nov. 7, 2018, Osman says he will donate 100 percent of proceeds generated from the sale of these impactful works to benefit Mountain Journal’s investigative reporting fund. 

It means that not only do buyers get a memorable piece of collectible fine art for their walls, but they will be supporting MoJo’s commitment to delivering free public-interest journalism aimed at defending one of the most iconic complex of public wildlands in the Lower 48, if not on planet Earth.

A multi-media visionary, Osman is known for his etched glass and carved doors, sculptures and commissioned paintings that can be found in private collections, hotels and commercial spaces throughout the Rockies.
