VIIETNAM COMBAT ART PROGRAM--During the Vietnam War the U.S. Army established a program called the Vietnam Combat Art Program. Teams of soldier artists were sent to Vietnam to make pictorial records for the annals of military history. Nine Combat Art Teams (CATs) operated in Vietnam between June 1966 and January, 1970. Over 40 artists participated in the program and all of the work completed as soldier artists is currently in the U.S. Army Art Collection, Center of Military History, Washington, D.C. Below are links to some of the former Vietnam soldier artists current web sites.

ARTISTS OF THE BLACK HILLS
Artists of the Black Hills (ABH) was founded in 2005 with a common goal of establishing the Black Hills region as a prime source for art. ABH sponsors a major annual show and sale and has undertaken a nationwide advertising campaign. The group works with regional arts organizations, state agencies and commercial entities to foster greater growth and appreciation of the Black Hills as an art center. James Pollock is a signature and founding member of ABH. You can see more of his art by clicking on his name.
Mick Harrison is a good friend. We have participated in many of the same art shows, and to the say the least, have shared some interesting experiences in the process. Mick was the driving force behind the founding of Artists of the Black HIlls.
Ray Wattenhofer is also a good friend and has traveled with Mick and myself to many of the same shows. From time to time the three of us along with other artists paint on location together.

George Pratt is a successful author and a wonderful artist. I met him when he came to South Dakota for a Harvey Dunn exhibition as part of his research on a doucmentary film he is working on about WWI artists. George PrattŐs sketchbooks are wide ranging, depicting images from his imagination to what is in front of his nose--- and he says he takes a sketchbook wherever he goes. Take a look, it will be worth the time.
