Conrad Schwiering affection for the West’s peaks and vastness blossomed in his native state, Colorado, but when he attended college in Wyoming and saw the Tetons, he began what would prove to be a lifelong affair of art. After a period of study at the Art Students’ League in New York and a stint in the service, Schwiering returned to Wyoming and settled in Jackson. There, he devoted his life and career to capturing the Tetons in every season and in every light.
