Dust in the Distance by Martin Grelle
As the early settlers pushed farther West, the Native American culture was affected in many ways. Through trade and sometimes from battle victories, the Indians acquired objects and knowledge that changed their daily lives. This brave rests his telescope on a long rifle to scan the vast valley before him. With a new ability to see Dust in the Distance, perhaps these braves will have an advantage over an enemy who may be approaching.
Dust in the Distance was first exhibited at the Prix de West Invitational in June 2006. Grelle is one of only five artists to have won the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award twice, for Teller of Tales in 2002 and Two Coups in 2005.
