Seattle-based Safeco Insurance began collecting art in the 1970s and sought to build a collection that reflected “the creativity and diversity of the communities it served.” Recognized nationally as a model for corporate collecting, the Safeco Art Collection evolved to capture a uniquely Pacific Northwest aesthetic. The MAC is proud to be entrusted with a portion of the Safeco Art Collection and to preserve its legacy.

Jeff Weir is a contemporary western oil painter bringing life to his experiences living and working in North Idaho. Coming from a background working in the woods and making a living with a chainsaw, he pulls from memories, daydreams, and his imagination to show how beautiful life can be in the mountains. Jeff uses oil paint in thin, transparent layers alongside thick opaque brushstrokes full of color, to create work with a strong presence.
Tanden Launder is a multidisciplinary artist also working and living in North Idaho. He has experimented with many mediums, although his mixed media work has been relatively recent. His interest in and appreciation for Americana started in boyhood, stemming in part from the many biographies he read about the likes of Buffalo Bill, Amelia Earhart, John Dillinger, Sitting Bull - the list goes on. Some of those same books now serve as part of the collage material he uses to build the layers of his pieces.
This exhibition was inspired by Weir’s and Launder’s shared interest in the Wild West story of restlessness, rowdiness, and a pure pursuit of freedom.
