Wilson Hurley, the only son of Patrick J. Hurley (above) grew up knowing how to meet presidents and other world leaders.  His path, however, would take him far from the corridors of power and into the grandeur of nature.  Wilson graduated from West Point and George Washington Law School, but gave up careers in the military, law and engineering to devote himself to painting.  He is known for this use of dramatic broad landscapes to communicate his passion and reverence for the beauty of the world.  He has also been a featured artist at Gilcrease Museum’s Rendezvous.
