Featured in this lot is this 1989 mixed media called "The Journey" by Margie Jackson (born 1934 and passed 2021). This is a beautiful mixed media artwork showing a scene of pioneers and in the right-hand corner and a band of Native Braves following them. The artist’s signature is hand written in the bottom left-hand corner and on the piece in the bottom right-hand corner with the date; the piece is titled in the center bottom of the piece. Margie Jackson (1934-2021) was a painter for years before she became a sculptor. Her experience at casting her creations in bronze began around 1976. Jackson lived on a farm in Yelm, Washington, but she grew up in Texas and Oklahoma. Because the range was open and cattle left on their own, they would be prey to packs of wolves and coyotes. Horses were still respected as a means of transportation and the area was plentiful with Native Americans still richly steeped in their own culture, lending to the inspiration of her work. Among her numerous awards are Best of Show-Sculpture at the Celebration of Western Art Show in Olympia, Washington and First and Second places at the 1986 and 1987 Arizona Annual Art Shows. She was commissioned to create bronze and limited-edition prints celebrating the Washington State Centennial; the city of Yelm purchased one of these pieces for installation in the City Hall. The condition of this mixed media is good and well preserved, with no obvious signs of damage. The measurements of this framed artwork are 26 1/4" x 36 1/4" and the visible art measures 17" x 27". Provenance: This is from the personal Artist Margie Jackson.
